Are you teaching a young person to drive?

Did you know that across NSW, young drivers are three times more likely to be involved in casualty crashes? That’s why NSW Roads and Maritime Services introduced a licencing scheme with more supervised driving practice for learner drivers.

In the Hawkesbury, between the years 2013-2017, 64% of learner drivers aged 17-25 years were injured in 874 car crashes. Tragically, six of these young people lost their lives on our roads.

Hawkesbury City Council, in conjunction with NSW Roads and Maritime Services, is offering a free workshop for parents and supervisors who are teaching a young person to drive.

The two hour session will be held on Wednesday, 28 November from 6pm to 8pm at the Tebbutt Room, Deerubbin Centre, 300 George Street, Windsor.

The workshop is an excellent way to get practical advice on how to help learner drivers become safer drivers. Participants learn about completing logbooks, how to plan an on-road driving lesson, what to do when you run into challenges, and information regarding the latest licence conditions and road rules.

Supervisors of young drivers can also find engaging information on the NSW Roads and Maritime Services website for young drivers.

Let’s all work Towards Zero. See more about the safety campaign.

Please book ahead by contacting safety@hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au or by calling (02) 4560 4498 as light catering will be provided.
