Welcome to Moorgate Training - Approved drink drive course provider

The Course


  • The DDRS course should be offered to all first-time offenders although repeat offenders are not specifically excluded.  If offered by Magistrates it will be in addition to any fine / disqualification.  The course does not replace supervised probation alcohol education but complements it.
  • The aim of the course is to reduce reoffending by educating those people convicted of drink-driving about alcohol and by improving their knowledge, skills and attitudes towards drinking and driving. The methodology has been shown to reduce reoffending both in Britain and abroad.  Whilst on the course participants learn how to separate drinking from driving.

    Course content and isues covered include the following:
  • Review of individual offences – causes, consequences and alternatives to drinking and driving
  • Alcohol and the law: the offence of drink-driving
  • Effects of alcohol on performance, especially on driving skills
  • Links between alcohol and road safety
  • Attitudes towards drinking and towards drink-driving
  • The concept of ‘units’ as a measure of alcohol
  • How alcohol accumulates in and is eliminated by the body
  • Effects of alcohol on health and behaviour. Individual drinking patterns
  • Practical ways to separate drinking and driving

Teaching methods include formal lecture, discussion, group work, dvd’s, hand outs and home assignments.

The course consists of:

  • 3 sessions held once a week for three consecutive weeks.
