Helping Learner Drivers Become Safe Drivers - 17 May 2022

Learner-Driver

Wingecarribee Shire Council is hosting an online road safety workshop designed to increase knowledge and confidence in supervisors of learner drivers.

Parents and supervisors play a vital role in providing young drivers with the experience they need to be safe on our roads.

As rules, regulations and technology change, teaching our youngest road users the skills, knowledge and correct training methods to progress through the NSW Graduated Licensing Scheme is crucial.

The Helping Learner drivers become safe drivers workshop identifies key components of low-risk driving and highlights the importance of positive feedback. It also explores the role of parents in establishing parameters and support for provisional license holders, helping to create a positive environment for both the supervisor and learner driver.

Parents and supervisors who have attended this workshop have found that it boosted their confidence, helped them better plan driving sessions and allowed them to share their experiences with other parents and supervisors.

Learner Parent/Supervisor Workshop will cover:

  • Learner and provisional plate licence laws
  • Supervising learner drivers
  • Low risk driving techniques
  • Completing the learner driver log book
  • Benefits of on-road driving experience

Learner drivers are also encouraged to attend.

The 1.5 hour workshop will commence at 6pm online on Tuesday 17 May 2022.

For further information contact Council’s Road Safety Officer on phone 4868 0888.

Bookings essential via Eventbrite.

RSVP’s close at 5pm Monday 16 May 2022.
