    Long story short my mum had to go on one as she sped up past a camera to pull over as my dad was having a full on grand mal seizure and was hitting her. Because it was a camera that caught her and not a police car the police said there was nothing they could do and she could have either points or a speed awareness course. She chose the course. I'm looking at putting my mum on my insurance to lower it, do I have to legally mention she went on a speed awareness course or not?

    You have to tell them she has a motoring conviction but say she got no points and a higher fine for the awareness course.

    No- you dont mention it to the insurance.
    Basically, if you get offered the course (they dont do it in all areas), then they offer instead of a conviction. The conviction being the £60 fine and 3 points. You have to pay to go on the course- but at least when its done, its done, as you dont get a conviction. There is no need to mention the course as it isnt a conviction.
