HELPING LEARNERS BECOME SAFER DRIVERS WORKSHOPS

NSW Centre for Road Safety invites local parents and supervisors of learner drivers to free workshops being held on Wednesday 26 February at 4.30pm in Woodenbong and Thursday 27 February at 5.30pm in Lismore on how to 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 the 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 NSW.

Thomas George Member for Lismore said parents and supervisors of novice drivers have a crucial role to play in making our roads safer and this is why NSW Centre for Road Safety has developed a course 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,” Mr George said.

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

The workshop in Woodenbong will be held at Woodenbong Central School and in Lismore at Southern Cross University Zest Function Room – (entry via Goodman Plaza).
