The police and crime commissioner for Humberside, Matthew Grove, is to go on a speed awareness course after breaking the law in his car.
Mr Grove was recorded driving at 36mph in a 30mph zone on the Peaks Parkway in Grimsby in October.
He was offered the opportunity of a speed awareness course as an alternative to prosecution for a motoring offence.
Mr Grove said he "welcomed" the opportunity to go on the course and "reflect on my standard of driving."
He was elected to the £75,000 a year post last November as the Conservative Party candidate after narrowly beating Labour's Lord Prescott.
