Learner driver workshop to be held in Wellington

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 Senior Citizens Centre, Swift Street, Wellington on Monday 15 May 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, Dubbo Regional Council Road Safety Officer, Jayne Bleechmore, said.

“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,” Ms 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 others,” Ms Bleechmore said.

“The course reinforces the important role of families in providing on-going support for young drivers in the early years of driving,” she said.

Bookings for the ‘Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers’ workshop are essential and can be made by calling Dubbo Regional Council’s Customer Service Desk on 6801 4000.
