This course is for the driver who demonstrates carelessness or under performance.
The decision to offer this course should always be based on an objective assessment of the offender’s act or omission as to whether it amounts to:
- A lapse of concentration;
- An error of judgement;
- A general mistake, or
- A lack of awareness of the law pertaining to the offence that he or she has committed, that has not had wider consequences (i.e. a collision).
The course aims to raise driver’s awareness of individual driving skills deficits and to start the process that will allow drivers to addressing them.
Once a motorist has completed a course they will be ineligible for another course offer if they reoffend within 3 years of the original offence.
