For a saving of 30 is it worth doing the course?
Only if they also don't put the points on your licence in my view.
30 is less than an hour's pay for you ..... not worth giving up a day's work for. noooo:

Bosses son went on one of those, he said the 'teacher' was very patronising & spoke to then as if they were little children.
He got done again 2 weeks later. lol:
