Helping learner-drivers become safer

A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson invites parents and supervisors to attend a free workshop on how to provide an effective and safe practice session for learner drivers.

The ‘Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers’ workshop provided by Roads and Maritime will be held at:

• Nambucca RSL, Tuesday 21 February from 5.30pm to 7pm

• Coffs Harbour Showground, Wednesday 15 February from 5.30pm to 7pm

• Bellingen Youth Hub, Thursday 16 February from 5.30pm to 7pm

“Parents and supervisors play a vital role in providing young drivers the experience they need to be safe on the roads. This course has been developed to help teach with confidence so they can help learner drivers be safe on the road,” the Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.

“The two hour workshops include information about license conditions for learner and P plate drivers, tips for using the learner driver log book and the importance of providing constructive feedback.

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

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