We regularly hold FREE workshops for supervising drivers of learners. Watch this space for information on the next workshops.
Teaching a young person to drive might be the most important lesson you’ll ever give! Make sure you’re well equipped to help your learner driver become a safer driver by attending a free 2-hour workshop aimed at parents and supervising drivers.
Statistics show that young people are over-represented when it comes to accidents and fatalities on our roads. If you’ve taken on the responsibility of supervising a learner driver, you’re in the hot seat when it comes to ensuring they become a confident and safety-conscious motorist. To prepare yourself for this important role, join a free workshop that will reduce the stress, for you and your learner, and make every lesson more effective.
Attendees will be provided with information, practical advice, and a structured approach to building the competency of their learner, along with confidence in teaching safe driving habits.
The course has been developed by Roads and Maritime Services who recognise the important part that parents and supervisors play in supporting inexperienced drivers. Workshop content is designed to help supervisors prepare for the role by covering topics such as laws that apply to L and P licence holders, completing the learner driver log book, and the benefits of well supervised on-road driving experience.
Check back here soon for our next schedule of workshops, planned for around September 2019 and March 2020. Alternatively, you can email Council's Road Safety Officer, Chris Dimarco at Road.Safety@midcoast.nsw.gov.au to find out more information and to register your interest.
