Convicted of Drink Driving?

Being convicted of drink driving and receiving a ban is very serious and stressful. Let IAM RoadSmart give you support and the possibility of a reduction in your ban.

The Drink Drive Rehabilitation (DDR) course is for drink drivers referred to us by a court and is delivered by IAM RoadSmart’s Driver Retraining Academy. It will help you understand the dangers of alcohol, not only with respect to driving, but to your health and life in general.

COVID-19 UPDATE:

In line with current DVSA advice, we are pleased to be able to resume our classroom courses in England from 1 August 2020. Bookings are now being taken. Course delivery is not yet available in Wales. We continue to monitor the situation closely and make decisions based on DVSA advice.

Benefits of the course

Right now, you’ll agree there’s a human cost to your ban, as well as the stigma and shame that comes with it. Through the information and advice provided in the interactive course sessions, you will understand better the impact alcohol has on your driving, your body and your life and how it affects your family, friends and work.

At the end of the course, you can apply for a reduction in your ban. This is typically up to 25% – so for example, a 24 month ban could be reduced by up to 6 months. Let’s face it – attending is worth it!
