Learner Driver Workshops

Learner Driver Workshops

By Erin Archer

 

Learning to drive can be intimidating for many young people, however it can also be a daunting task for parents and supervisors, which is why free workshops have been planned for Orange and Molong in the coming days.

‘Helping Learner Drivers Become Safe Drivers’, is offering parents and L-plate supervisors hands on advice, about how to provide the most effective driving methods for practicing drivers.

 


The workshops will cover topics such as:

The licence conditions for learner and P-plate drivers

How to use the Learner Driver Logbook

The benefits of on-road driving sessions

Tips on supervising a learner driver


Both the Orange and Cabonne Councils have teamed up with the Roads and Maritime Services to hold the two free workshops. They will take place at the Orange Community Services and Information Centre, on Wednesday 22nd November, from 7pm to 9pm. And at the Molong Central School Library, on Thursday 30th November, from 7pm to 9pm.

2MCE Local News Journalist Kayla Webb caught up with Orange and Cabonne’s Road Safety Officer, Andrea Hamilton-Vaughan, who said it is well worth attending, because those who teach learner drivers have a crucial role to play in making roads safer.
