The RSA is in talks with experts in the UK about the idea.
It'd see first-time offenders undergo an education programme on the potential consequences of breaking the speed limit, instead of paying a fine or receiving points on their license.
Motorists would have to fork out for their own course, which would aims to educate offenders rather than prosecute them.
A similar system is already in place in the UK, where drivers who exceed the limit by 15-20kmph can waive a fine, by opting to take the education course instead. The court ultimately decides who has the option of driving school and who pays a fine/receives penalty points.
Barry Aldworth, PR Officer with AA Ireland, says they'd welcome the initiative:
"It's about giving them [drivers] an opportunity to learn why even speeding at that kind of lower threshold can be dangerous but avoid the ramifications of having penalty points on your license".
In the UK, the one-day course consists of a classroom session, an 'on-road' driving awareness class with a qualified instructor and the completion of workbook exercises, followed by feedback from an instructor.
