Drink Driving Courses


The NEVER Again Program is for road users charged with serious traffic offences. We run courses in Bega, Cooma and Queanbeyan.

It seeks to guide participants to a greater understanding of the circumstances surrounding their offence and to assist them to develop a commitment and an effective plan to avoid reoffending in the future.

The program assumes that recidivism can be avoided by providing participants with greater knowledge and understanding of factors that influence and affect behaviour, and the ability to drive both safely and legally. It also takes participants through a therapeutic process aimed at behaviour change in favour of safer driving attitudes and practices.



Drive4Work is an ideal road safety awareness program for employees, athletes and community groups that is conducted over 3 hours. It targets:

  • Reasons for crashes
  • Low risk driving techniques
  • Alcohol and drug driving
