An Alcohol Usage Assessment is conducted over about one hour, (allow an hour and a quarter). Some people may be referred for counselling or other treatment as directed by the assessor.

by the assessors and your drink drive education presenter. This report is
provided to the magistrate prior to the Licence Restoration Order Hearing.
