Resolved Question:

I have received a conditional offer fixed penalty. I currently have a clean licence. I have not been offered the option of a speed awareness course even though this is my first offence. ( i was doing 25 mph in a 20 mph zone in E8) Can i request this instead of the fine and points?

You can.

anybody can ask anything.

However it is entirely within their discretion whether they offer it or not Im afraid. Generally speaking if the offer is not made they will not usually do so whether a defendant asks or not.

Sorry if that is bad news.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Thank you
