Hmm, didn't pay a one off fee when I joined and only pay £12.99 for the total package, but as I said I did join in the 'sunrise' period at the start
If you drive a lot and/or need to preserve your licence as best you can (or need to be driven in the event you're banned after doing 150 by traffic with a calibrated speedo+onboard cameras lol) I don't think what I pay is much, but I would have to say the *new* fees are a bit of a bummer
I suppose it depends on how much you rate the service. I've had a 100% success rate with them and enjoy the extra perks I get..
Of course the police/government know that most people just pay the fine and take the points (or the course) but I'm not one for conforming....
