Workshop to help learners on NSW roads

Parents and supervisors of learner drivers in Ballina are invited to attend a free workshop to help them deliver the best on-road experience for learner drivers.

“Parents and supervisors of learner drivers play a crucial role in making the roads safer and the NSW Centre for Road Safety has developed this course to better support them,” Member for Ballina, Don Page said.

“Helping learner drivers become safe drivers is a two-hour workshop, delivered in local government areas across NSW by local councils in partnership with Roads and Maritime Services.

“Learner driver supervisors who attended this course found it boosted their confidence, helped them better plan and deliver driving sessions and allowed them to share experiences with other parents and supervisors.

“Information will be presented on licence conditions for learner and provisional drivers, young driver safety issues and low risk driving.

“The course will also reinforce the important role of families in providing on-going support for young motorists in the early years of driving,” Mr Page said.

The workshop will be held in Ballina from 5.30-7.30pm on Wednesday 11 September at the Ballina RSL Club, in River Street.

Bookings are essential and can be made by calling (02) 6648 5435 or online via
