New Driving Improvement Course

From 9 February 2009, persons falling within the following categories will be required to attend the driving improvement course on a mandatory basis within a specific period of time:
(i) offenders who have been convicted of serious traffic offences, such as dangerous driving and drink driving; or
(ii) traffic offenders who have accumulated 10 Driving-offence Points (DOPs) within two years. They will be required to attend the Course for every 10 DOPs Incurred.
