LAST weekend the 500th Southern Highlands learner driver completed the RMS Safer Drivers Course with Highlands Drivesafe in partnership with local provider Red Car Driver Training in Bowral.

The Safer Drivers Course aims to provide learner drivers with driving strategies such as speed management, gap selection, hazard awareness and safe following distances.

The course also aims to help learners identify situations that could put them at risk of being in a crash and assist them to develop strategies to avoid these situations.

Red Car Driver Training Owner Julie Dryer said Highlands Drive Safe was an absolute pleasure to work with. "They share the same ethos as us and our other partners being totally committed to the promotion of safe driving behaviours to young drivers," she said.

"Red Car is one of the smaller providers in NSW but has delivered the course to almost 1500 young learners in the Southern Highlands and Shoalhaven since the courses launch two and a half years ago".

The RMS Safer Drivers Course entitles learners to a 20 hour credit in their log book on completion of the course.

The cost of the course is $140 and can be completed in one weekend.

Participants must have completed a minimum of 50 actual hours prior to starting the course, hold a valid NSW Learner licence and be under 25.

Sue Tyler of Highlands Drive Safe said Red Car Driver Training was the first provider to deliver the Safer Drivers Course in the Highlands.

She said they had built a reputation of providing excellent customer service, and "our customers find they are very responsive and easy to deal with".

"Their online booking system has been available for over 12 months now and has streamlined the whole booking process".

Highlands Drive Safe is a one stop shop for learner drivers offering free Government funded Keys 2 Drive lessons, RMS Safer Drivers Course and professional 3 4 1 lessons.
