Any advice? I'm leaning towards the course if you don't have to disclose and points if you do.
Don't tell me it was A13?
Sorry to hear that, but as suggested earlier go for the course.

I'll be pretty pissed off if I get stitched up on insurance trying to do the right thing and going on a course that is supposed to help improve your driving. What's the point? Might as well have just taken the points and fine.
If you go for the course, your license is clean.
Some insurance companies may charges you higher premiums but not all of them.
Also, opting for course helps you to avoid tooting up the points.
