If you are a reasonably mature driver and these are your only points then it probably won't even affect your insurance. It depends which company you are insured with - my two most recent ones have both said that they regard three points as a sort of "normal" state, and if anything they are more likely to load you for having zero points because it implies you don't drive away from your local roads very much. The points are active for totting purposes for four years, but remain visible on your license for five IIRC.

Personally I'd do the course (I've done a couple over the last 15 years) - the cost is similar to the fine and you get free coffee & biscuits, but if I'd have to uncur serious travelling costs to get there then I guess I'd just take the points.
