The national scheme means that those forces collaborating in it follow the same ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) guidelines. The same course is provided anywhere in England, Wales or Northern Ireland. This means that a person who commits an offence in one part of the country may take a course at a venue of their choice provided that venue has been approved to deliver the national course. Once an offender has completed a national course their details are placed on a national database so they are ineligible from accessing another national course within three years. The national courses are constructed by a Strategic Course Development Group consisting of leading academics and road safety officers. These national courses are subject to rigorous academic scrutiny prior to being launched, and undergo monitoring and evaluation to ensure they are fit for purpose. The whole of the national regime is governed by a governance board.
