TOP ONLINE is a web-based traffic offender intervention developed for desktop, tablet and smartphone applications. Here, it is shown that online learning can be used to deliver specific messaging for a common category of offenders – novice drivers. The TOP ONLINE: Novice Driver Traffic Offender Unit provides a targeted, high fidelity program allowing revision of graduated driver licensing concepts and specific restrictions applicable in NSW as well as more general road safety messaging. Offenders enjoy the online content and the flexibility of self-paced learning. However, only half of novice driver traffic offenders are willing to undertake a web-based learning unit.
