The Sober Driver Program is available for repeat and high risk drink drive offenders who have an order with Corrective Services NSW (CSNSW) or who have received interlock exemption order from the Court.
If you have received an order with CSNSW, you will be informed by your community corrections officer of the location and times of the Sober Driver Program you need to attend.
If you have received an interlock exemption order from the Court under the Mandatory Alcohol Interlock Program, you are required to complete the Sober Driver Program before you can re-apply for your driver licence. The program will either be provided as part of your order with CSNSW or, if you do not have an order with CSNSW, you will need to register for the program with Managed Training Services (MTS).

Repeat and High Risk Drink Drive Offenders
The Sober Driver Program was created to help reduce drink driving related road deaths and serious injuries on NSW roads. It targets repeat drink drive offenders as well as those who have committed a single serious or high-range offence.
Research shows that drivers previously convicted of drink driving are approximately four times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than an average driver.
In 2015, alcohol was known to be a contributing factor in 13 percent of all total crashes.
