Compulsory safe driving programs

 

As a result of the Road Safety (Amendment) Act 2012 (Vic), magistrates can order “hoon” drivers to undergo a safe-driving program (s 84BL(1)). The court notifies VicRoads of the order (s 84BL(5)), and VicRoads notifies the drivers that they are required to complete this program (s 84BM). If a driver fails to do so, their drivers licence can be suspended until the driver completes the program (s 84BN).
