Safer Drivers workshop – Tuesday 27 October

The Safer Driver workshop is a train the trainer style class to help parents, relatives or family friends who take on the onerous task of teaching young people how to drive. The workshop aims to teach supervisors how to best use the learner driver log book, how to plan for driving sessions, as well as how to deal with difficulties that may arise during driving practice and explores the issues facing young drivers.

This workshop is designed to assist Parents and Supervisors of Learner Drivers who are required to undertake the NSW’s Graduated Licensing Scheme. All persons who wish to supervise a learner driver must:

  • Hold a current full Australian driver licence – not a learner or provisional licence
  • Have a good understanding of the road rules
  • Be a competent driver
  • Be able to effectively communicate information and ideas clearly.

Teen drivers are at a higher risk of crashing during their first year of solo driving on their “P” plates. Limited driving experience in a range of driving conditions often leaves them unprepared or unable to handle a vehicle in an unexpected situation. They are also more likely to take greater risks relating to speeding and dangerous overtaking.

The NSW Government developed the Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers workshop, with the aim of reducing road trauma involving young drivers.
