Mr Wood

: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

The database on which statistics are recorded by ACT Policing in relation to alcohol related driving offences does not differentiate between licence type but records offences based on the prescribed content of alcohol allowable to the driver. In relation to provisional and learner licences, the prescribed content of alcohol is 0.02 in both cases. The total number of drivers in both categories with blood alcohol levels above the limit of 0.02 during 2002-03 was nine and during 2001-02 was 12.
