Welcome to the driver safety scheme section.
Humberside Police run a range of courses that are offered to motorists when certain traffic offences have been committed. These courses are offered to motorists as an alternative to being prosecuted for the offence. Delegates are charged a fee for the course as an alternative to a fine and points on their licence.
The courses allow drivers to understand the risks and consequences associated with certain driving behaviour. Delegates can only attend one course in a three year period.
The courses have been developed by education experts and psychologists and allow the driver or rider to reflect upon and change their driving style. Preliminary results from national research show that the courses are successful at having an impact on attendees.
Where are our courses held?
The majority of our courses are held at our dedicated training venue at the Freedom Centre, 97 Preston Road, Hull, HU9 3QB.

In deciding to offer you a driver safety course Humberside Police has checked your details against a national database to establish if you have completed a similar course within the last three years of this offence.
If you decide to accept the course and take it in Humberside we will hold your details. If you take a course outside of the Humberside area your driving licence number and additional information will be passed to the course provider for that area.
If you complete the course, your details relating to this course will remain on file for road safety research purposes for a further seven years from the date of offence, after which any personal reference to you will be erased.
Your details will not be released to any other parties except a Police Force if they are considering making an offer of a course in the future or to those involved in the original offence, which is a legal requirement.
Your personal details will not at any time be made available to the public.
If you fail to complete the course or if the offer is withdrawn your personal details relating to this matter will be erased from the national database.
