Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.Any driver course is optional and does not have to be offered.
Unfortunately, the police force in question does not state the limit of the threshold only that there is one. https://www.cumbria.police.uk/Advice-Centre/Road-and-Vehicle-Safety/Speed-Awareness-Courses.aspx
However whether it is 35 or 36, really would make little difference, the decision to offer the course is optional and if the course is not offered then the choice is a fixed penalty or court.
The normal rule is that if you have attended any of the courses within 3 years then a second course is not offered.
That is my understanding, if a person has been offered any one of the courses within 3 years, then a second course would not be offered.
As I say, that is my understanding of the courses, if you have attend one, then you cannot attend another within 3 years.
For example two speed Awareness course cannot be attended in 3 years, likewise you cannot attend a driver improvement course if a speed course has taken place in 3 years. Some can be taken as they are not alike, but that does not apply to all courses.That is my understanding of this issue. If in doub5 you can call one of the providers and double check.
But also remember any offer of a course is also optional.
