Our local drink drive courses could help you get your licence back early
If you are found guilty of a drink drive offence, there are different penalites depending on how over the limit you were.
However, if you lose your licence you may be offered the chance to reduce your ban by doing a course. If you are not offered the opportunity of an educational course, you or your solicitor will need to ask the judge if you are eligible.
Completing a course can mean a 25% reduction in your driving ban. It's not a telling off – it just gives you all the facts so you can make better, more informed decisions in the future. The course covers the impacts of alcohol on the body, the potential consequences of drink driving, and looks at risk-taking behaviour.
