Thomas George MP, Member for Lismore, invites parents and supervisors of learner drivers to learn how to give effective driving instruction at a free workshop being provided by Roads and Maritime Services.

Mr George said the Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers workshop will be held at Woodenbong Central School on Unumgar Street at Woodenbong on Thursday 19 March at 5.30pm.

“Parents and supervisors play a pivotal role in shaping young people’s driving habits and the course has been developed to help them do this job with confidence,” Mr George said.

“The two hour workshop includes information about licence conditions for learner and P plate drivers, using the learner driver log book and the importance of constructive feedback.

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

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