    I have to say I found mine a very positive experience, done in the midlands though so was provided by TTC2000. It did drag a little though and I agree that it could have been condensed into 2 or even 1 day, however...the information I gained from it regarding alcohol units, health implications and driving afterwards was very valuable. The trainer was very good too, a previous police officer who clearly knew what she was talking about and if she didnt know the answer to a question it was provided the next time we met. The bunch of lads on the course was good too, a bit of banter never hurts and the ice break questions about your levels of breath etc, although nerve racking, levelled the playing field when we all realised we had done more or less the same thing and started to talk about it!

    There was the usual 1 bloke who loved to hear himself talk though but isnt there always and thats not the courses fault! I paid 120 I think and to bring the ban back under the 1 year barrier to 9 months has saved me roughly 400 on insurance premiums even if I dont mention the course, so for those with a 12 month ban definately do it!

    I attended the TTC2000 course in December 2013. My main aim was just to get 3 months off my ban.

    I found it interesting and whilst I knew some of the information covered I have to say there were bits I had forgotten or didn't know in the first place. I don't consider it to have been a waste of time or money. There was a bit of a sombre atmosphere throughout but that was nothing to do with the course content or the tutor, it was because the very fact that we were on the course was just another reminder of our misdemeanours.
    Would I pay for and attend the course if I wasn't getting a reduction on my ban? No, I wouldn't and I think that's probably true for 99% of attendees but if you want a reduction on your ban and if you can attend the course with an open mind then you definitely will learn something that you didn't know before.

    I would recommend the course to anyone who has the option to attend.

    Chris,
    I am glad that you found the course worthwhile.
    Our aim is to always deliver information in a "non judgemental" way.
    I had an insight a couple of years ago as to how nerve wracking it is for people attending these courses. At our first coffee break, a man came up to me and said: "can I ask you something..... why are you being so nice to us?" I asked him what he meant, and he said: "well, you know what it feels like to be in court...... Oh, I suppose you don't..... But imagine that buttock clenching moment when you are stood up in front of the magistrates... I thought it was going to be like that, a 3 day bollo**ng."
    The courses are nothing like that, but the perception that there is going to be a repeat of the course experience does account for people either choosing to not do the course, or sometimes turning up with a negative attitude. That is why I try to go to extra lengths to put course attendees at their ease.

    The lady who took our course was fantastic. Very pleasant, totally non-judgmental and put everyone at ease. She encouraged a bit of banter but knew exactly when to stop it too. It's a boring subject for someone to talk about for two and a half days in the same way that it's hard to listen to for the same time. But she was excellent.
