Helping learner drivers: Free workshop in Bombala
Monday 20 October 2014
Parents in Bombala teaching their children how to drive will be able to get some practical advice through a free workshop, the Member for Monaro John Barilaro said today.
The NSW Government is conducting free two hour workshops ‘Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers’ for parents and supervisors across the state.
“Parents and supervisors of novice drivers have a crucial role to play in making our roads safer; for this reason the NSW Centre for Road Safety has developed a course to better support them,” Mr Barilaro said.
“The workshops will provide practical advice on topics such as understanding the new laws for L and P license holders completing the Learner driver log book and supervising learner drivers.
“The workshops are specifically targeted at parents, friends or relatives who are, or will be supervising the learner.”
Mr Barilaro said parents and supervisors who have attended this course found it boosted their confidence, helped with planning driving sessions and allowed them to share experiences with other parents and supervisors.
“The course also reinforces the important role of families in providing on-going support for young motorists in the early years of driving,” Mr Barilaro said.The workshop will be run by Roads and Maritime Services at Bombala High School, Bright Street, Bombala on Thursday 30 October from 5.30pm to 7.30pm
Bookings for the Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers course are essential and can be made by calling Donna Jordan on (02) 4221 2592.
