Safer Drivers Course
From the 1st of July, Robert’s Driving Academy T/A Mariele’s Driving School will be able to conduct the NSW State Government initiative known as The Safer Drivers Course.
What is the Safer Drivers Course?
The Safer Drivers Course is a course involving practical and theoretical elements including a facilitated group discussion session as well as in-car coaching.
The Course involves two modules:
Module one: A three-hour facilitated group discussion on how to manage risks on the road. This will involve a maximum of twelve participants and will be delivered by a facilitator.
Module two: A two-hour in-vehicle coaching session to develop low-risk driving strategies. This will involve two participants and a coach.
The Safer Drivers Course has been developed by a board of road safety experts including representatives from Centre for Road Safety, Roads and Maritime Services, NSW Police, road safety researchers and education specialists developed the course curriculum.
Completing the Safer Drivers Course has many benefits. Learner drivers who complete the course will increase their road safety skill and learn about driving alone, different road conditions as well as identifying hazards and managing risks.
Learner drivers will be educated how to develop action plans to continue applying the skills learned through the Safer Drivers Course.
Learners will also receive 20 hours of credit on their compulsory 120 learner logbook hours.
The Safer Drivers Course will give learners a better appreciation of road safety issues not covered by existing education.
