Free workshop to help learners become safer drivers
4 June 2018
Roads and Maritime Services is encouraging parents and supervisors to attend a free workshop on how to provide effective and safe practice sessions for learner drivers.
A Roads and Maritime spokesperson said the ‘Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers’ workshop will be held on Tuesday 12 June in the Hamilton North Bowling Club at Hamilton North.
“The workshop will be held from 5.30pm to 7.30pm and will provide information about licence conditions for learner and P plate drivers, tips for completing the paper and digital learner driver log books as well as explain the importance of providing constructive feedback,” the spokesperson said.
“Parents and supervisors play a vital role in helping young drivers gain the skills and experience they need to be safe on the road.
“This course has been developed to help young people in the local area learn these skills with confidence and ultimately, make the journey from L to P plater safer for all road users.
“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 previously 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.”
Bookings are essential and can be made by calling 0419 312 042.
