Diversion program

For an explanation of this, seeDiversion” under “Other orders” in Sentencing in the Magistrates’ Court. The diversion program does not apply to speeding offences, drink-driving offences, dangerous-driving offences and some other offences (where there is a mandatory loss of licence) (s 59 CP Act). Any driver placed on a diversion program still incurs demerit points for the offence (s 59(7)).
