Fleet management & Govt. vehicles welcome. Vince Sorrenti Sometimes we hear feedback from our members along the lines of “There are plenty of penalties out there for bad dr ivers – demer it points, fines, even impounding vehicles and steering wheel clamping – but where are the incentives to do the right thing?” Some great customer service by one of our staff recently has highlighted an example where young Tasmanians are actually being offered a carrot – and not just a big stick – to be safer drivers. After arranging a new RACT Insurance policy for an existing member, Hobart customer ser vice officer Angela Foster asked me to follow up her customer’s additional enquir y about a recent change to the licensing regulations in Tasmania. The question was about how a P-plater who graduates to a full licence with a blemish-free driving record can have their P-plate licence fees reimbursed. There is indeed such a facility – it’s called Offence-Free Rewards. I passed on the details to Angela for her customer and I’m including them here in Jour neys for other readers who may be interested. Vince Taskunas General Manager - Public Policy and Communications What is the Offence-Free reward system? A person who was first issued with a P1 licence in Tasmania after 25 August 2008 and who progresses through the P1 and P2 licence stages to a full Tasmanian licence without a demerit point offence, a period of disqualification, a licence cancellation or suspension, or a period of ineligibility, may apply for a refund of the P1 and P2 licence fees (for motor vehicle or motorcycle, but not both). How do you apply for the Offence-Free reward? You must hold your full licence for a per iod of six months before you apply.
