The NEVER Again Program is for road users charged with serious traffic
offences. We run courses in Bega, Cooma and
It seeks to guide participants to a greater understanding of the
circumstances surrounding their offence and to assist them to develop a
commitment and an effective plan to avoid reoffending in the future.
The program assumes that recidivism can be avoided by providing
participants with greater knowledge and understanding of factors that
influence and affect behaviour, and the ability to drive both safely and
legally. It also takes participants through a therapeutic process aimed
at behaviour change in favour of safer driving attitudes and practices.
This therapeutic process includes:
Increasing awareness of what led to their offence
Increasing understanding of the consequences of their offence
Exploring the feelings associated with their offence
Exploring the risks associated with illegal driving
Considering further consequences of reoffending
Planning and making a commitment to avoid future reoffending
The program is conducted as a facilitated workshop using adult learning
techniques that require participants to engage and take responsibility
for their own learning. This allows participants to be in control
of their learning by using information to develop their own ideas and
solutions. These techniques have been proven to be the most effective in
terms of adult learning and behaviour change in a training environment.
