Parents and other supervisors of local learner drivers can dial into a free online workshop next week full of practical advice and information about completing the 120 hours of supervised driving.
The ‘Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers’ workshop is scheduled for Thursday, 10th December from 6pm running for about 75 minutes.
Parkes, Forbes and Lachlan Shire Council’s Road Safety and Injury Prevention Officer, Melanie Suitor, said while the usual face to face workshops were not possible due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, the online delivery would hopefully make it more easily accessible for participants to attend.
“Parents and supervisors of learner drivers have a crucial role to play in making our roads safer. That is why we have teamed up with Transport for NSW.”
The workshop covers the licencing system, how to use the Learner Driver Logbook including the use of digital logbooks, licence conditions for learner and P-plate drivers, the benefits of on-road driving sessions, tips on supervising a learner driver and more.
Bookings are essential and can be made online via Eventbrite, through the Councils’ Facebook pages or by calling Melanie on 6861 2364.
