Workshops for parents of learner drivers

Free workshops providing parents and supervisors hands on advice on how to provide the most effective driving practice for learner drivers, will be held across the Monaro in March, the Member for Monaro, John Barilaro, announced today.

As a parent of a learner driver, Mr Barilaro said the workshops can help to reinforce the important role families provide in giving on-going support for young drivers in the early years of driving.

"Teaching your children how to drive can be a really daunting thing for parents and supervisors," he said.

"Feedback from parents and supervisors who have attended this course found it boosted their confidence, helped them better plan driving sessions and allowed them to share experiences with other parents and supervisors."

The two hour long workshops are being run by the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and will cover topics such as new laws for leaner and p-plate drivers, how to use the learner driver log book and how to plan driving lessons.

"Parents of a novice drivers have a crucial role to play in making our roads safer which is why RMS has developed a course to better support them," said Mr Barilaro.

Four workshops will be held in March:

13 March at Bombala High School from 6pm to 8pm

18 March at Monaro High School, Cooma from 6pm to 8pm

19 March at Jindabyne Central School from 5.30pm to 7.30pm
