HELPING LEARNERS BECOME SAFER DRIVERS WORKSHOP

Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George today invited local Woodenbong parents and supervisors of learner drivers to a free workshop to be held on Thursday 23 May to help provide the most effective driving practice for learner drivers.

The workshops are designed to help driver supervisors plan the best on road experience for learner drivers and include information about licence conditions for learner and provisional drivers, young driver safety issues and low risk driving.

The two hour workshops, Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers are delivered in local government areas across New South Wales by local councils in partnership with Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).

”Parents and supervisors of novice drivers have a crucial role to play in making our roads safer and this is the reason a course has developed to better support them.

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

“The course also reinforces the important role of families in providing on-going support for young motorists in the early years of driving,” Mr George said.

The workshop on 23 May will be held at Woodenbong Central School. Bookings are essential and can be made by calling (02) 6648 5435 or freecall 1300 359 968.
