Learner Driver Workshops for Parents 

‘Helping learner drivers become safer drivers’
– FREE parents’ workshop

Young drivers represent 13 per cent of licensed drivers yet they are involved in 26 per cent of all fatal crashes. To reduce the death and injury of young people on our roads the NSW Government has introduced a range of new initiatives outlined in an upcoming free workshop being held at Burwood Library.

The Graduated Licensing Scheme (GLS) provides a strong emphasis on competencies and safety to assist in improving the ability of young drivers to stay safe on the road.

To help parents in supervising learner drivers, the RMS (formerly RTA) and Burwood City Council have set up a free workshop that offers practical advice on how to help learner drivers become safer drivers. 

The FREE workshop covers a number of topics including:

  • Current revised laws for young drivers
  • The new RMS safer drivers’ course
  • The importance of supervised on-road driving experience
  • Understanding the log book and ways to gain credited hours
  • Developing a partnership with the learner driver
  • Planning on-road driving experiences. 

The workshop will be held on Thursday 21 May, 5.45–7.45 pm.

Burwood Library, 2 Conder Street, Burwood (bookings essential).

If you require any further information or to book a place, please contact Viyolla Ciofani, Burwood Council’s Road Safety Officer, on 9911 9974 or email: Viyolla.Ciofani@burwood.nsw.gov.au.
