Helping learners become safer drivers at Belligen workshop
A free workshop for parents and supervisors of learner drivers will be held in Bellingen later this month as part of an initiative between Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and the NSW Centre for Road Safety, Acting Premier and Oxley MP, Andrew Stoner announced today.
The workshop will be held on Monday 22 July and will teach the most effective driving practice for learner drivers.
Mr Stoner said the workshops are designed to help driver supervisors plan the best on-road experience for learner drivers.
“They include information about licence conditions for learner and provisional drivers, young driver safety issues and low risk driving,” Mr Stoner said.
“Helping learner drivers become safer drivers is a two hour workshop delivered in local government areas across New South Wales by local councils in partnership with RMS,” Mr Stoner said.
“Parents and supervisors of novice drivers play a crucial role in making our roads safer. This is the reason the NSW Centre for Road Safety has developed a course to better support them.
“Those who attended this course found it boosted their confidence, helped them better plan 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 Stoner said.
The workshop will be held at 5.30pm at Bello Youth Hub in the main meeting room at Bellingen.
Bookings are essential and can be made by calling (02) 6648 5435 or freecall 1300 359 968.
