Get on the road to safe driving with Wingecarribee Shire Council’s free road safety workshops.
Council’s Road Safety Officer Melanie Lausz explained that parents and supervisors play a vital role in providing young drivers with the experience and support they need to be safe on our roads.
“Navigating rules, regulations, technology and teaching novice drivers the skills, knowledge and correct training methods to progress through the NSW Graduated Licensing Scheme is crucial,” she said.
The Graduated Licensing Scheme Parent Workshop identifies key components of low-risk driving and highlights the importance of positive feedback.
It also explores the role of parents in establishing parameters and support for provisional license holders, helping to create a positive environment for both the supervisor and learner driver.
Learner drivers are also encouraged to attend.
The two-hour workshop will commence at 6pm at Council’s Moss Vale Civic Centre Theatrette on Wednesday, February 20.
The second workshop is the practical Log Book Run designed to expose learner drivers to new driving scenarios.
Participants will discuss important tips for rural driving and have the opportunity to participate in a question and answer session with local Police Officers.
Lunch will also be provided.
Learner drivers must be accompanied by their supervisors and have at least 25 hours recorded in their Learner Log Book to participate.
The workshop will commence at 10am at Council’s Moss Vale Civic Centre on Sunday, March 3.
Bookings for both events are essential.
