Driving 4 Change

The Driving 4 Change course is an alternative to a fine and penalty points for people who commit selected road traffic offences where there is evidence to face prosecution.

If you have been offered a place by the police, you can book online:


This is a practical course but you will not need to provide your own car. Upon completion, clients should be able to:

  • Demonstrate safer and more responsible attitudes towards driving
  • Recognise that the way they drive has consequences for themselves and other road users
  • Show awareness of the physical, emotional and financial consequences of being in a crash
  • Understand the need for traffic rules
  • Identify and overcome barriers to safe and responsible driving
