If the Notice of Intended Prosecution is printed on green paperwork, you are offered one of the following three options.

Option 1A - Attend a Driver Offender Retraining Workshop / Course.

The type of retraining will be dependent on the offence and will be identified in the first paragraph on page 3 of your paperwork.

If your notice is on green paper, you may have the option to pay for and attend training. The training lasts approximately four hours and your driving licence will not be endorsed with any points. To be eligible for a retraining workshop / course, you:

  • Must have a driving licence (full or provisional, issued in any country).

  • Must not have attended Driver Offender Retraining for a similar offence within the last three years or be waiting to attend one.

  • Must be able to pay the workshop fee in full. Please do not send any money with your completed form.
