Licence Eligibility Order Reports
LEO assessments are used as a base for information gathering to determine whether Drink or Drug Drivers require further assistance for possible problematic use of Drugs and or Substance Dependence.
A Drink or Drug Drive offence can be indicative of an alcohol and drug problem, but this is not always the case. Recommendations and strategies may be discussed to reduce current use if needed and a Report is prepared and sent to Court for the Magistrates consideration.
Assessments typically take 45-60 minutes.
Alcohol Interlock Imposition Exemption
Drivers who committed a drink driving offence before 1 October 2014 and who have not yet applied for a drivers licence or permit and might have had an interlock condition imposed if they had attended court prior to 1 December 2019 will now be managed by VicRoads and will require a new process to manage their licensing application.
New legislation (Section 50AAAE of the Road Safety Act 1986) requires these drivers to apply for an exemption from the alcohol interlock condition or be relicensed with an alcohol interlock condition (minimum 6-month condition).
Eligible drivers seeking an exemption from the alcohol interlock condition are required to have an alcohol assessment. The assessment will determine their level of alcohol use, dependency and any hazardous drinking problems that would indicate the need for an interlock condition being imposed or an exemption being granted.
