wrap the select in a select

select count(*) from (
select a.area_rep_no,
          a.drive_date,
          a.drive_id,          
          a.site_code,
          a.projection,
          nvl(a.actual_draw,0) actual_draw,      
          to_char(round((nvl(a.actual_draw,0) / a.projection) * 100 ),'fm9999.00') as pert,
          CASE
            WHEN coach_drive='C' THEN 'Coach'
            WHEN coach_drive='M' THEN 'Mini'
            ELSE 'Inside'
         END coach_drive
  from blood_drives a,
       sites b
where a.site_code = b.site_code
  and a.projection != 0

If pert can never be >= 200%, then
select ...,
floor(nvl(a.actual_draw,0)/a.projection) as count100%+

BTW, the problem with pert > 100 is that it's a character field when applying the to_char function so, for example, '90' will be greater than '100'

I slightly changes the query

select count(*) from (
select a.area_rep_no,
          a.drive_date,
          a.drive_id,          
          a.site_code,
          a.projection,
          nvl(a.actual_draw,0) actual_draw,      
          to_char(round((nvl(a.actual_draw,0) / a.projection) * 100 ),'fm9999.00') as pert,
              (nvl(a.actual_draw,0) / a.projection) * 100  as pert1,
          CASE
            WHEN coach_drive='C' THEN 'Coach'
            WHEN coach_drive='M' THEN 'Mini'
            ELSE 'Inside'
         END coach_drive
  from blood_drives a,
       sites b
where a.site_code = b.site_code
  and a.projection != 0
  and a.drive_cancelled is null
  and a.drive_date between '01-may-2013' and '31-may-2013'
  and a.area_rep_no = 12
order by 1,2 ,4)
where pert1 > 100

There is no need to replicate the whole query if you only wanted the count and not the other attribute values, why not just -
select sum(case when pert > 1 then 1 else 0 end) as cnt from
(select nvl(a.actual_draw,0)/a.projection pert
 from blood_drives a, sites b where a.site_code = b.site_code
 and a.projection != 0 and a.drive_cancelled is null
 and a.drive_date between '01-may-2013' and '31-may-2013' and a.area_rep_no = 12)

Also, be careful with
"a.drive_date between '01-may-2013' and '31-may-2013'"
If drive_date contains a time portion, you will not get any
records for 31-may-2013 except for precisely midnight and,
when doing date math, it is always better explicitly convert
to date datatypes -
where a.drive_date >= to_date('01-may-2013',dd-mon-yyyy')
  and a.drive_date < to_date('01-jun-2013',dd-mon-yyyy')

We are not hardcoding dates. It was as an example I gave. We are taking dates from the drives table.
