Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Jo C, I’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
were you given the option of speed awareness course?
Are you asking if you can force them?
I cannot really give you good news.
Nobody actually has a right to the speed awareness course. In fact it is a disposal that does not exist in law. It is entirely invented by the police in order to divert cases away from court.
Nobody is entitled to the option of a speed awareness course. They are perfectly free to withdraw at will.
I suppose if they started to act in a capricious fashion then you could judicially review the decision to refuse to offer the course but that would cost £5k-£10k as there is no a high chance of success.
I’m very sorry but that is the reality.
Can I clarify anything for you?
