Parents and supervisors of local learner drivers are encouraged to attend a free workshop at Parkes Christian School on Wednesday, 6th December at 6pm. The two-hour workshop, Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers, will offer parents and supervisors hands-on advice on how to provide the most effective driving practice for learner drivers.
Parkes Shire Council’s Road Safety and Injury Prevention Officer, Melanie Suitor, who is presenting the workshop said: “Parents and supervisors have a crucial role to play in making our roads safer.”
“The workshop covers the changes to the licencing system that has come into effect on 20th November, 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.”
Melanie said parents and supervisors who had attended the workshop in the past found that it boosted their confidence, helped them better plan driving sessions and allowed them to share their experiences with other parents and supervisors.
Bookings are essential and can be made by calling Melanie on 6861 2364. Light refreshments will be available during the workshop.
