, I have booked a driver speed awareness course next week

Resolved Question:

hello, I have booked a driver speed awareness course next week in stead of accepting the 3 penality points due to speed limites (39, in road 30 )., however I am concerned that I might have failed to stop in one of red traffic light (although with very low speed, due to personal conditions). if I complete the course, will i still have 6 points ? many thanks

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

Was this at the same time or a different date please, the red light offence?

Customer:

different date.

Customer:

I have just booked the speed awareness course next week so that to remove the 3 penalty points

Customer:

however, I was not feeling well today, but have to drive for an important meeting. when I in city centre, there are a number of traffic lights, I was looking forward, and just didnot reallize the red lights before I pass it.

Customer:

If I successfully complete the course next week. while I still receive the 3 penalty points for red lights, will I then have 6 points?

Alex Watts :

So it happened today?

Customer:

yes, I passed the red lights, and in the middle just reallized it,

Customer:

so sad about this.

Customer:

just to know whether the 3 points for speed limits offence will still count, after I complete the course?

Alex Watts :

No.

Alex Watts :

After you complete the course you would only have 3 points for the red light matter

Alex Watts :

Not 6, assuming you complete the course.

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer:

so between now, and till I complete the course, if I receive the letter, I shall wait till I finish the course next Tuesday?

Alex Watts :

Yes finish it.

Customer:

yes plesae

Alex Watts :

Does that help?

Customer:

yes, thank you so much. I will complete the course next Tuesday, and for the red light letter, will have to accept the 3 points then. is this the case?

Alex Watts :

Sadly I think so if you have been caught.

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything else for you?

Customer:
