This achievement is a lot easier than it seems - go to Grand Prix mode and select your best track. Set the race distance to 20% (any less and you will get time penalties instead of drive-throughs). Change the difficulty level to Custom, and put "Rules and Flags" to 'Realistic'. You can also set the AI to Amateur, and put on any assists you like. You also need to make sure the Safety Car is switched on (thanks Lavindathar).

You can be awarded Drive-through penalties for a number of different things (blocking, causing a collision, corner cutting). Personally I found the easiest way to get a Drive-through penalty in a race is to gently cut corners in a way that gains you a time advantage or a race position. Chicanes are particularly good for this.

It is important to choose a race that you know you can pull out a big lead on, as you will have to perform the drive-through as well as your standard pit stop (unless you choose rain), meaning that you will need around a 20-30 second advantage over the trailing drivers each time you go in to the pit lane.

Once you have served your Drive-through, just finish the race in first and the achievement will pop on the results screen.
