Parents and supervisors of local learner drivers are encouraged to attend a free workshop which will be held at Red Bend Catholic College in Forbes on Tuesday, 19th March commencing at 6pm.
The free 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.
Forbes Shire Council’s Road Safety and Injury Prevention Officer, Melanie Suitor, said the workshops offer practical advice to parents and supervisors on how to help learner drivers become safer drivers.
“Parents and supervisors of learner drivers have a crucial role to play in making our roads safer. That is why Forbes Shire Council has teamed up with Roads and Maritime Services to hold these free workshops.”
