What is the Traffic Offenders Program?

The Traffic Offenders Program is a professionally run community program which aims to re-educate people about driver safety and the road rules. The Traffic Offenders Program is a voluntary course that can be undertaken by a willing participant. Therefore, it is completely up to the individual to turn up on time, be in a sober state and to also follow all the rules and guidelines set down by the course coordinator.

Generally the Traffic Offenders Program will cover a number of different topics relating to driver safety and the road rules presented to the participant by variety of different authorities on the subjects being presented.

The experienced presenters at the Traffic Offenders Program bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the classroom so that they can provide you with the best education possible on a whole range of issues related to driver safety and the road rules.

Participants will need to attend all sessions on time, be attentive throughout each sessions, complete workbook and homework material and have that work signed off by the course coordinator in order to successfully complete the Traffic Offenders Program.

Full 1 Day S.A.V.E. Traffic Offenders Program

The S.A.V.E. Traffic Offenders Program is a relatively new and fully approved Traffic Offenders Intervention Program which is being carried out at a number of select locations around Sydney and surrounding areas.

This course covers the same topics as the 6 week course conducted by the NSW Police Citizens Youth Clubs however the main difference being is that these sessions are condensed into a full 1 day program, usually carried out on 1 or 2 Saturdays per month per location.

Many of our clients have families or lead very busy lives and they often prefer to be able to complete the fully approved 1 day course instead of spreading it out over 6 weeks. If this Traffic Offenders Intervention Program would be more suitable to you then you can find more details about the course at their website SAVE Traffic Offenders Program.
