A new online e-learning course that deals with impairment by alcohol and drugs is now available for ADIs to complete in their own time.

The Impairment E-learning Course, developed by the Road Safety GB Academy, provides ADIs with an increased knowledge and awareness of how alcohol, cannabis and cocaine impact on road user behaviour – together with the legal implications of using such substances in the road safety context.

The three highly interactive modules will provide an increased understanding of:

  • How these particular drugs impact on road user behaviour
  • Why the drugs have these effects
  • The legalities around alcohol and drugs
  • Possible countermeasures

Each module takes approximately 30 minutes for participants to complete – and can be completed in their own time.

The cost to access the full online course is £37 (plus VAT) for Academy members and £45 (plus VAT) for non-members.

On completion, the practitioner will need to successfully complete a short assessment to receive the Road Safety GB certificate.
