Making the program better

We’re keen to make the program better. That means we want to know how effective the program is for people who have been found guilty of speeding, drink driving and other driving offences. We use this information to improve the educational information given in the program lessons, and to develop new lessons and new ways of teaching.

So if you enrol in the program, you will get the chance to help us (well, really, help us to help you!) by answering some questions about interesting stuff, such as the development of driverless cars, changes to police enforcement technologies and tactics, new traffic management ideas, even down to things such as would you drive through flooded roads. Most people tell us that these questions are fun!

Here’s what some of this research has told us:
