Drink Driver Education

Drink Driver Education


The Back on Track Drink Driver Program has been designed with the intent of educating and changing attitudes and behaviours of participants. The program has been based on substantial research of best practice drinking and drug driving programs in the Territory, other jurisdictions and international interventions. The content of the program has been designed to incorporate these research findings in relation to program effectiveness and outcomes.

The drink driving program consists of one or two units and is run over two consecutive days.

Unit One (UGS002)

For first offenders disqualified from driving due to blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of less than 0.15. 

Cost $300 (one full day)

Unit Two (UGS003)

For drivers with a previous drink driving conviction and for those disqualified from driving due to a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) reading exceeding 0.15. All participants must undertake Unit One prior to commencement and completion of Unit Two.

Cost $370 (two full days)
