I'm Clare, and I need a Speed Awareness Course...

I'm holding up my hand here as someone who's committed a driving offence recently. NOTHING on my licence for 20+ years, then I was caught speeding at 38 in a 30 zone. Fair cop as they say. I think many of us get complacent over the years with our speed awareness, and it's not as if we don't all have a load of other stuff going around in our heads, even when we're driving. No excuse, I know.

Anyway, they've offered me attendance on a Speed Awareness Course as an alternative to registering points on my licence. It's an interactive, 4 hour course, though at a desk rather than in a car.

I'm PETRIFIED! I'm not even sure what of. I don't think you can "fail", but I suppose I just don't know what to expect. I haven't felt like this since the last exam I took, in 19*cough*whenever. And I've heard they show you some pretty sobering footage.

I'll report back when it's done! I won't be fit for conversation, online or otherwise, until then. I'm tense as anything over here! (see, I can't even think of a good simile for Tense As *g*).
