Speed Awareness Training

Trainees will come away from this course with a much better understanding of how to pick an appropriate speed, why they are likely to speed, and what they can do about managing their speed. Its aim is to eliminate speeding fines, improve safety, reduce wear and tear, and increase fuel economy - all of which have a positive impact on financial and human costs.

This online course is designed to help people manage their speed by understanding why we have speed limits, why we like to speed and why humans are not designed for speed.

It helps drivers pick an appropriate speed, understand what is causing them to speed, and what the risks are of speeding.

Delivered using a mix of humour, facts and real-world examples, your drivers will gain a deep understanding of the seven reasons we speed and the numerous actions we can take to avoid it.

This course is not preachy; it acknowledges we all speed from time to time, whether accidentally or deliberately, but it gives solid strategies that help the driver choose appropriate actions.

What are the advantages of this speed management course?

  • Full access to all course materials for 6 months - take it as many times as you like in that time
  • It takes around 30 minutes and can be done on a smartphone, tablet or computer
  • It's easy to schedule - split the modules over several days or do them all in one sitting


"I just wanted to send you some feedback on the Speed Awareness Course that 30 of our itinerant teachers completed in the last couple of days. There was overwhelming positive feedback on the short, but very worthwhile course." Pakuranga Intermediate

"I did the online Speed Awareness course because I use a company vehicle that is speed monitored.  I received a report that showed that I was regularly going over the speed limit - not by a huge amount, but consistently. I thought the course was good (not too long and covered all the important things) and has helped me be more aware of my speed." Andy (Hamilton)
