Thank you.

You can request the evidence. There isn't really much point because then that would commit you to a court appearance. Since you accept that you were speeding that would be rather pointless.

It is impossible to say why they chose not to offer the awareness course. It may not be available in your area or it may be oversubscribed. Either way it is a discretionary matter. They do not have to make it available. There is no appeal arising from the fact that they did not.

Cannot clarify anything for you?
