VicRoads Safe
Driving Program

Where here to help

It is easy to develop poor driving habits and sometimes these become dangerous, like speeding. If you have lost your license and have been directed to do the safe driving program by a magistrate, we can help.


In the Safe Driving program, we will work with you to to help you understand your risky driving behaviours and what triggers them. We will support you to develop a plan to reduce these risks. We designed the program for Vicroads, so you can be confident you are in good hands.


Whilst your aim is to get your license back, our aim is to make our roads safer by reducing dangerous driving and preventing future harm to you and the community. 

“I never realized that I was more likely to speed when I was stressed or angry…. It was really helpful to learn about triggers and develop strategies to reduce my speeding. I am more aware of my mood and try not to get in the car when I’m in the wrong headspace”.
