You can be offered a rehabilitation course to reduce your driving ban if:
You are found guilty of a drink-drive offence;
your ban is for 12 months or more.
You have to pay to take the course.
Reducing the length of your ban:
Your ban will be reduced if you complete the course within a certain time. The ban is usually reduced by a quarter.
Deciding to take a course:
You have to decide in court if you want to take a course or not. You cannot change your mind later.
