A probation order is an order in which you are released on upon sentence in a magistrates court. It can be anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.

While on probation, you will be required to comply with a set of requirements such as:

  • Reporting to a probation office upon your release.
  • Not committing further offences.
  • Participating in any programs which your officer requires you to do.
  • Getting permission to leave the state.
  • Notifying the probation office if you change your address

If you don’t agree to a probation order, the magistrate will sentence you to another form of punishment such as a term of imprisonment.
