Learner Driver Programs

Learner Driver Programs

The Wingecarribee Shire Council Road Safety Officer coordinates a number of free activities designed to assist learner drivers to become safer drivers, including parent workshops and hands-on driving events.



GLS Parent Workshops for Supervisors and Learner Drivers


Council's Road Safety Officer, with support from the Roads and Maritime Service (RMS), offers GLS Parent Workshops for Supervisors and Learner Drivers four times a year to provide practical advice about the role of supervising a learner driver. 


This workshop reinforces the role of the supervising driver and the importance of the 'stepped approach' to allow learner drivers to get their initial driving experience under conditions involving lower risk, and then gradually present them with more complex situations. It also highlights the importance of teaching 'low risk driving' techniques to learner drivers and the important role of parents in establishing parameters and support for provisional licence holders.


The two-hour workshop is for parents, other supervisors of learner drivers and the learner driver. The workshop seeks to provide practical advice on supervision, completing the Log Book and current licence conditions.

Log Book Run for Learner Drivers & Their Supervisor


The Log Book Run is a great opportunity for you and your supervisor:


  • To put what you have learnt at the workshop into practice, and for 
  • Learner drivers to cover some of the many topics included in the Learner Driver Log Book while clocking up some driving experience hours.


The Log Book Run starts with a short workshop for learner drivers and their supervisors followed by a drive on a set route that includes a wide range of road conditions and tasks such as random breath tests, roundabouts, traffic lights, narrow bridges and windy roads.
