Do we need to tell our insurer of a speed awareness course?

My son is to attend a speed awareness course - his insurer states that the Insurance Ombudsmen says he does not have to declare it on an insurance application but I think this is sailing close to the wind. We have a family multi-car policy - should I declare it to them now?

No, you do not need to declare. An offence is one whereby points have been placed on a licence. No points, no offence. No need to declare.

I got a red light fine but I went to a speed awareness course so assumed I didn't need to declare it to my insurer (Admiral). But they found out and want to charge me £320. What can I do now?
I'm waiting to find out if I’ve been caught speeding. If it’s a speed awareness course - which it should be as it was less than 80mph on a motorway and would be my first offence - would I have to declare...
I was caught doing 36mph in a 30mph zone and have to attend a course on speeding. As I have not been prosecuted or had points put on my licence, do I need to inform my vehicle insurer?
