When it comes to teaching young learner drivers all of us can do with a little help – that’s something I know from experience with two teenage boys. For the last couple of years, Council in conjunction with the Roads and Traffic Authority, has run free workshops for parents and supervising drivers who are teaching people to drive. The workshop goes through the new laws for L and P licence holders, how best to be a supervising driver, how to complete the necessary learner driver log book and the benefits of supervised on-road driving. When we’ve held the workshops in recent years they have been really popular – and worthwhile. The next one is scheduled for September 8 at the Central Library at Eastgardens between 5.45 and 7.45 pm. You’ll need to book as places are limited and you can do this by calling Yasemin or Patrick from our Youth Services on 9366 3889.
