Making Safer Young Drivers

In conjunction with the Roads and Traffic Authority, we’ve hosted special workshops to assist parents and those supervising learner drivers.  Each time we hold the safe driver workshops we’re swamped with people wanting to help young leaner drivers become better drivers. Disturbing statistics show that young drivers between 17 and 20 years old are three times more likely to be involved in serious accidents.   We don’t want these trends to continue and that’s why we work with the RTA to try and overcome the high accident rate.

The workshop focuses on helping parents and those who supervise learner drivers with safe driving messages and tips that they can use when teaching young people to drive.  There is also information on the Graduated Licensing Scheme, which requires learner drivers to have 120 hours of supervised driving practice. The workshop is free and it will be held in the Central Library at Eastgardens on Thursday, August 19 between 5.45 - 7.45pm. You ill need to book and for further inquiries and registration please contact Patrick or Yasemin on 9366-3889.
