Free workshop for parents and supervisors of learner drivers
11 September 2018
Parents and supervisors of learner drivers are invited to attend a free workshop in Casino this month on how to provide effective and safe practice driving sessions, Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis has announced.
Mr Gulaptis said the ‘Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers’ workshop, provided by Roads and Maritime Services, will be held at the Casino Community Centre on Walker Street in Casino on Monday, 24 September from 6pm to 8pm.
“Parents and supervisors play a vital role in providing young drivers the experience they need to be safe on the roads,” he said.
“This course has been developed to help them teach with confidence so they can help learner drivers be safe on the road.”
The two hour workshop includes information about licence conditions for learner and P-plate drivers, tips for using the learner driver log book and the importance of providing constructive feedback.
“The course also reinforces the important role families play in providing ongoing support for young motorists in their early years of driving,” Mr Gulaptis said.
“Parents and supervisors who have attended found the course 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.”
