Learn Safe Workshop

Join us for our first ever online Learn Safe Workshop scheduled for Monday 29th June at 6:00pm. 

It’s a FREE 2 hour Workshop held by Wingecarribee Shire Council's Road Safety Officer to give you practical advice and to help you guide your learner to become a safer driver.

Research suggests that a reduction in crashes in the first few years of driving can be achieved if learner drivers have a large amount of supervised on-road driving experience. The Workshop should increase your:

  • Confidence in supervising learner driver;
  • Understanding the importance of on-road driving experience;
  • Understanding of the learner driver log book;
  • Understanding how to encourage safe driving behaviour in the learner driver; and
  • Understanding of the licencing conditions for learner and provisional licence holders.

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.
