The Traffic Offender Intervention Program is a local court based program targeting offenders who have pleaded guilty to, or been found guilty of, a traffic offence.
The goal of the program is to provide offenders with the information and skills necessary to develop positive attitudes towards driving and develop safer driving behaviours.
On application by the defendant, the defendant's legal representative, or the courts own motion, magistrates can make a referral to an approved traffic course provider. The case will be adjourned for sentencing, allowing sufficient time for the nominated course to be completed.
The program is regulated under the
Criminal Procedure Act 1986. A register of approved course providers has been established and courses included on the Traffic Offender Intervention Program Register are approved for a period of three years.
The Traffic Offenders Register provides details of the approved course providers offering the course in various locations across New South Wales. To obtain further information about enrolling in a Traffic Offender Intervention Program please contact your nearest course provider directly.
Note: The Department of Justice and the Centre for Road Safety are conducting a joint review of the Traffic Offender Intervention Program (TOIP). The Department of Justice will not consider any applications for registration of TOIP courses or additional course locations during the review period.
The review is near completion, however the suspension applies until further notice.
