Back on Track

Back on Track is a provincially mandated program for ‘warn range’ suspended and convicted impaired drivers. It requires that all participants register and pay the registration fee before they can start the program. Convicted impaired drivers are required to complete all three parts of this program and serve their suspension period before they are eligible to have their license reinstated. Please note that it can take up to 11 months to complete all three program components.

While our office is contracted to provide services to people living in the counties of Peterborough, Northumberland, Haliburton and the City of Kawartha Lakes, any participant can access the service by traveling to Peterborough.

For Convicted Drivers the three phases include:

Assessment – This 60 minute assessment takes place in person at the Peterborough office. The assessment will determine whether the participant will attend a one-day education or two-day treatment workshop.

Education or Treatment Workshop – The focus of both workshops, Education 8 hours and Treatment 16 hours, is to develop strategies to avoid impaired driving in the future. They require that the participant be able to read and write English. If a participant is not able to read or write English, then s/he is required to bring a translator or helper to assist in the workshop.

Follow-up Interview – This 30 minute interview is conducted by phone six months after the education or treatment workshop is completed. The program is not considered complete until this follow up interview has been conducted.

For Warn Range Drivers:

Education or Treatment Workshop – The focus of both workshops, Education 8 hours and Treatment 16 hours, is to develop strategies to avoid impaired driving in the future. They require that the participant be able to read and write English. If a participant is not able to read or write English, then s/he is required to bring a translator or helper to assist in the workshop.
