Rehabilitation Scheme for Drink Drive Offenders

The procedure for courts to refer drink drive offenders to approved training courses is specified in sections 34A to 34C of the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988. This guidance identifies good practice for course organisers in the provision of courses and sets out the minimum requirements for course content and delivery which must be met. It also seeks to promote consistent administrative procedures in the operation of the scheme by courts in England, Wales and Scotland.
