A FREE workshop for parents and supervisors of learner drivers is being held by Dubbo Regional Council in conjunction with Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).
The workshop will be held in the Conference Rooms, Dubbo Regional Council Administration Building on Monday evening 4 December 2017 from 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm.
The two hour workshop, Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers, will offer parents and supervisors hands-on advice on how to provide the most effective driving practice for learner drivers.
Guest speaker, Inspector Dan Skelly from Orana Local Area Command will be attending this workshop. Parents can take this opportunity to ask questions and gather more information especially regarding licence conditions, driving offences and NSW road rules.
“Parents and supervisors of novice drivers have a crucial role to play in making our roads safer, and that is why the RMS has developed a course to better support them.” Dubbo Regional Council’s Road Safety Officer, Jayne Bleechmore said.
The course will cover topics such as:
- Supervising learner drivers
- Completing the Learner Driver Log Book
- The benefits of supervised on-road driving practice
- Licence conditions for learners and provisional licence holders
- The new Safe Drivers Course
- Low risk driving strategies
“Parents and supervisors who have attended this course found it boosted their confidence, helped them plan better driving sessions and allowed them to share experiences with other parents and supervisors” said Ms Bleechmore.
“The course reinforces the important role of families in providing on-going support for young drivers in the early years of driving” she said.
