Free course for disadvantaged learner drivers
The NSW Government is offering 1000 free places on the Safer Drivers Course each year to help young learner drivers from disadvantaged backgrounds and Aboriginal communities. The fee exemption allows those who are financially disadvantaged to benefit from the road safety outcomes of the Safer Drivers Course.
The course helps young drivers on their L-plates prepare for driving solo when they graduate to provisional licences. The course teaches learners how to reduce road risks and develop safe driving behaviour. It includes ways to cope with potential dangers, such as when you have mates in the car, or if you're running late.
It's also designed to help you understand more about speed management, gap selection, hazard awareness and safe following distances, which your parents, supervising drivers or professional driving lessons may not have covered.
As well as becoming a safer driver, you can earn a bonus of 20 hours of log book credit once you complete the course, so you only need to finish 100 hours of supervised driving outside the course. The course has been designed for a learner to attend once, so the 20 hours of bonus log book credit will only be deducted once.
To be eligible for a free place you need to:
- Hold a valid learner licence
- Be aged under 25 years
- Have completed a minimum of 50 log book hours
- Hold a current Pensioner Concession Card issued by the Department of Human Services – Centrelink.
