Before the Program
MTS Sober Driver Program
If you have an interlock exemption order, and do not have a court supervisory order, you must register your requirement to complete the Sober Driver Program.
On the website, you will need to provide the following information:
Customer Number (recorded on your letter from Roads and Maritime)
Disqualification end date (recorded on your letter from Roads and Maritime).
If you have an interlock exemption order and you also have a court supervisory order, you can complete the program through Corrective Services NSW. You should contact your local Community Corrections office as soon as you receive your letter from Roads and Maritime notifying you of your requirement to complete the Sober Driver Program.
The program costs $700 which covers the full three days. You will also need to organise your own transport and meals as required.
Financial assistance may be available from Roads and Maritime if you are experiencing severe financial hardship. Financial assistance covers the full program fee of $700 and is paid directly to the Sober Driver Program Provider.
For more information on applying for severe financial hardship assistance, contact Roads and Maritime on 13 22 13. You will be referred to an assessment agency that will assess your financial situation and eligibility for assistance. Roads and Maritime will advise you in writing about the outcome of your application. The assessment is valid for a period of three months at a time.
Once you have completed the online registration, you will be placed on a waiting list for the next available Sober Driver Program closest to you. Once a program is available, MTS will email you to advise you of the dates and location of the program.
To confirm your place in the program, you must pay the full program fee. A link to the payment website will be provided in the email you receive from MTS.
If you do not wish to enrol in that program, you will be placed back onto the waiting list. Unfortunately MTS cannot guarantee when the next available program will be.
If you're unable to attend the program you are enrolled in, you must notify MTS at least 10 days before the first day of the program to receive a refund.
You will be placed back onto the waiting list for the next available program. When you are notified of the next available program, you will be required to pay the full fee to confirm your place in the program.
Refunds will not be issued for any cancellations made less than 10 days before the start of the program, except where a medical certificate is provided or in exceptional circumstances assessed as reasonable on a case-by-case basis.
