Drive Ban Reduction Calculator

This calculator can be used to assist Courts when working out reductions in disqualification periods and establishing course completion dates.

The following has been extracted verbatim from the Sentencing Guidelines Council’s publication entitled Magistrates’ Court Sentencing Guidelines:

“21. The reduction must be at least three months but cannot be more than one quarter of the total period of disqualification:

  • a period of 12 months disqualification must be reduced to nine months;
  • in other cases, a reduction of one week should be made for every month of the disqualification so that, for example, a disqualification of 24 months will be reduced by 24 weeks.

22. When it makes the order, the court must specify a date for completion of the course which is at least two months before the end of the reduced period of disqualification.”

– Magistrates’ Court Sentencing Guidelines, P.186, Paragraphs 21/22
