Drivers who attend a speed awareness course instead of taking a fine and points on their licence may see their insurance premiums increase.Drivers who attend a speed awareness course instead of taking a fine and points on their licence may see their insurance premiums increase.
Some insurers are treating it as if it were a conviction, even though the police do not, according to a BBC investigation.
Some drivers have seen their policies go up by hundreds of pounds after declaring they had been on a course.

Flawed logic there. Won't they now be LOWER risk now they've completed the course?

You can see there may be some degree if increase as it supposedly indicates some degree of higher risk to the insurer, but would, presumably be a lesser increase than if they had been going so fast as to merit fpn/summons. Whether the police consider it is a conviction or not is completely immaterial.
