Workshop is the right road to success for learner drivers

PARENTS and supervisors of learner drivers will be able to access information about driving practices and teaching techniques at a free workshop at Woolgoolga early next month.

The Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers workshop will be hosted by Roads and Maritime Services at Woolgoolga High School from 5.30pm on Thursday, June 11.

Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser said the course reinforces the important role of families in providing ongoing support for young motorists in the early years of driving.

"Parents and supervisors play a pivotal role in shaping young people's driving habits and the course has been developed to help them do this job with confidence," Mr Fraser said.

"The two-hour workshops include information about licence conditions for learner and P-plate drivers, using the learner driver log book and the importance of constructive feedback."

Mr Fraser said those people who had attended the course reported it boosted their confidence, helped them better plan driving lessons and allowed them to share their experiences with other parents and supervisors.

Bookings are essential. For enquiries phone 6650 1969 or visit etcltd.com.au/rms.
