Parents and supervisors of local learner drivers are encouraged to attend a free workshop which will be held at Forbes High School on
Wednesday, 29th November. 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, who is presenting the workshop says it is well worth
attending. “Parents and supervisors of learner drivers have a crucial role to play in making our roads safer. That is why Forbes Shire Council have teamed up with Roads and Maritime Services to hold these free two hour workshops to offer practical advice to parents and
supervisors on how to help learner drivers become safer drivers.
“The workshop covers the changes to the licensing system that came into effect 20th November 2017, 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.
“Parents and supervisors who have attended this workshop in the past have found that it boosted their confidence, helped them better plan driving sessions and allowed them to share their experiences with other parents and supervisors,” said Melanie.
The Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers workshop will be held at Forbes High School on Wednesday, 29th November commencing at 6pm. Light refreshments will be available during the workshop. Bookings are essential and can be made by calling Melanie on (02) 6861 2364.
