Drink Drive Rehabilitation Course moves online

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Court referred driver courses are being transferred from a physical classroom-based environment to an online, digital classroom course accessed via a secure video link.

Due to COVID-19 crisis the DVSA advised DDR course providers not to start any new classroom-based rehabilitation courses until further notice. This follows discussions with Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunal Service, the Welsh Government and Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service taking into account the UK Government’s instructions on social distancing and restrictions on travel.

4th May DVSA has authorised the completion of DDR course for offenders who have already started a course to complete this online.

Who is eligible to complete the course online?

Where offenders have already taken the first, or first and second day of a 3-day DDR course, offenders can complete the course remotely in an online digital classroom. Unfortunately offender who have passed the critical date set by the courts, they will not be able to complete the remainder of your course online.

Priority order of drivers for digital classroom option

We are working pro-actively to manage existing delegates in priority order, so please do not call us. Please wait for us to contact you.

Booked delegates will be contacted by email, text or phone and information provided on the system requirements to attend the online digital classroom course, joining instructions containing a link to an 'explainer video' confirming what to do next, and will require a designated ‘quiet’ area to participate.
