What is the Behaviour Change Program (BCP)?

The Behaviour Change Program is designed to help you identify the underlying reason for your drink and or drug-driving offence and identify ways to reduce the risk of re-offending.

If you meet all the participation requirements at the end of the program, you’ll receive a Certificate of Completion.

What type of BCPs are there and how do they work?

Drink Driver Program – The program is held over two sessions, one week apart. Each session runs for approximately 3.5 hours and includes a break/s.

Drug Driver Program – The program is held over two sessions, one week apart. Each session will run for approximately 3.5 hours and includes a break/s.

Intensive Drink and Drug Driver Program – The program is held over four sessions. There will be three 3.5 hour sessions (includes a break/s) and a one on one counselling session with the facilitator prior to the third group session.

If you’ve committed a drink-driving offence and you’re a participant in the Intensive Drink and Drug Driver Program, you’ll also need to complete a 2-hour Pre-Interlock Removal Program before you can have your alcohol interlock removed .

What kind of BCP do I need to do?

The type of BCP you need to complete depends on the details of your offence. Refer to the below table for details.
