Parents and supervisors of local learner drivers are encouraged to attend a free workshop which will be held at Forbes High School on Tuesday 3rd September 2019.
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.
Lachlan Shire Council’s Road Safety and Injury Prevention Officer, Belinda Coe, says the workshop offers 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 Parkes Shire Council have teamed up with Roads and Maritime Services to hold these FREE two hour workshops. The workshop covers the licencing system, 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,” said Mrs Coe.
“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,” Mrs Coe said.
The Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers workshop will be held at Forbes High School on Tuesday 3rd September commencing at 5:30pm. Light refreshments will be available during the workshop.
Bookings are essential and can be made by calling Belinda Coe on 6861 2364.
