Safer Drivers Course Overview
The Safer Drivers Course aims to provide learner drivers with driving strategies such as speed management, gap selection, hazard awareness and safe following distances so students are more prepared when they drive unsupervised on their provisional licences. The course also aims to help learners identify situations that will put them at greater risk of a crash and consider strategies that will help avoid them.
The Course comprises of two modules:
Is a three hour facilitated group discussion on how to manage risks on the road. This involves a minimum of six and a maximum of twelve participants and is delivered by a facilitator.
Is a two hour in vehicle coaching session to develop low-risk driving strategies. This involves two participants and a coach, and is held in vehicles provided by the course provider (with dual controls fitted). These sessions are run on weekends and times/dates allocated when booking. This is not a conventional driving lesson and due to the vastly varying level of manual learner driver skill all module two sessions are provided in Automatic cars. This does not affect the type of licence the learner wishes to gain and enables both participants to get the most out of the session.
On completion of both modules (both modules must be completed within 4 weeks), a learner driver will receive a 20 hour credit in their learner driver log book. Please note that this course can only be attended once. The cost of the Course is $140 including GST and must be paid in full prior to the start of the course.
When payment has been processed, a receipt will be issued together with joining instructions.
Participants must be 16 to under 25, and must hold a valid NSW Learner Licence and have completed a minimum of 50 actual driving hours including night hours (not including any additional hours obtained through lessons with a driving instructor called 3 for 1’s) and have them logged in their log book prior to starting the course. Log books will be checked prior to the commencement of the course and must be up to date and all entries signed off. Please note that participants can only attend the NSW Safer Drivers Course once.
Please note places are allocated on payment only. Once payment has been received, you will be sent an email confirming receipt of your payment and joining instructions which will confirm dates and times for Module 1 and Module 2 which is the two hour in car session.
