Are you teaching a young person to drive?

Blue Mountains City Council is hosting an online workshop for parents, and other supervisors of local learner drivers, that is full of practical advice.

The free 'Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers' workshop is on Wednesday 8 September from 6:30pm to 8pm.  It provides all the information you need to help your learner to successfully complete the 120 hours of required supervised driving.

“While the usual face to face workshops aren’t possible due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, the online delivery will make it more easily accessible for participants to attend,” Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill said.

“Participants can attend from the safety and comfort of their own home.  The estimated run time is around 1 hour and 30 minutes.”

Parents and supervisors of learner drivers have a crucial role to play in making our roads safer.  It’s a great opportunity to be up to date with information.

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.

“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,” Mayor Greenhill said.

Bookings are essential and can be made online via Eventbrite any questions can be directed to Councils Road Safety Coordinator via council@bmcc.nsw.gov.au
