Learn to Create Better New Drivers

By Central Coast Council
Posted: 4 May 2021
A joint Central Coast Council and Transport for NSW initiative is helping parents and supervisors with the important task of teaching learner drivers.

Council Director Community and Recreation Services, Julie Vaughan said the Transport for NSW funded program sees Council deliver free workshops designed to provide practical and hands-on advice to younger drivers.

"The workshops are designed to equip parents and supervisors to better explain and demonstrate the skills needed to be a good driver," Ms Vaughan said.

"We have a series of great tips to help you build an effective teacher-student dynamic and most importantly to help create safe and responsible drivers.

"Younger drivers make-up almost one quarter of annual road fatalities despite representing only 15 percent of all licence holders - this is an alarming statistic that we all need to work towards bringing down."

Council Administrator, Dick Persson AM said the workshops are an important part of Council's commitment to road safety across the region.

"When we teach the important skill of driving, we have a responsibility to help create safe and effective drivers," Mr Persson said.

"If you're teaching a young driver or are about to start, I'd encourage you to register for one of our free workshops and be equipped with the skills and knowledge to create great drivers for the future."

The 'Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers' workshop is a two-hour program that provides practical advice to help supervise learner drivers and covers topics including:

  • new licence conditions for learner and P plate drivers
  • how to use the Learner Driver Logbook
  • the benefits of on-road driving sessions
  • tips on supervising a learner driver
  • the importance of giving the learner constructive feedback.
