Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers
Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers is a free road safety workshop designed to increase knowledge and confidence in supervisors of learner drivers, with four workshop dates scheduled for 2023.
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 Safer 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.
The 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 alongside their driving supervisors.
The two-hour workshop will commence at 10 am on Sunday 23 July 2023.
