Safer Drivers Course

Research has shown provisional drivers are most at risk on our roads, don’t be a statistic! Complete the Safer Drivers Course and be credited 20 logbook hours.

The Safer Drivers Course is a NSW Government initiative to give learner drivers the skills and knowledge required to be become safer drivers before gaining their licence and entering this high risk period. Any learner driver under 25 who has completed at least 50 logbook hours are eligible to complete the course and be credited with a further 20 hours in their logbooks. The course consists of two modules:
Module 1 – A three hour workshop to increase safe driving skills. Module 1 is led by an experienced facilitator in an adult learning environment with up to 12 participants. Participants will come away with the knowledge and understanding of:
·         The difference between supervised and unsupervised driving
·         The increased risk for provisional drivers and how these risks relate to road safety and crash involvement
·         Internal and external influences behind the wheel
·         How to grow your circle of control
·         How to identify, manage and reduce these increased risks

Module 2 – An in vehicle practical on low risk driving strategies. Module 2 gives participants the chance to put what was learnt in Module 1 into action out on the road with a licenced driving instructor in a dual control vehicle. Participants will gain practical driving skills in:
·         Following distances
·         Crash avoidance space
·         Speed management
·         Spatial awareness
·         Hazard perception
·         Decision Making

Benefits of attending the Safer Drivers Course:
The Safer Drivers Course assists in the progression from supervised to un-supervised driving and will provide participants with an understanding of how to reduce their risk of crashing by adopting safe driving behaviours, minimising risks and applying low risk driving strategies. It is also a great cost effective way to gain more logbook hours with the course only costing $140.

How does the credited logbook hours work?
A learner driver must have 120 hours of actual driving time in their logbook unless they utilise the 3 for 1 hours and Safer Drivers Course. After completion of the Safer Drivers Course participants will be credited with 20 logbook hours and only require an additional 100 hours outside the course. Up to 10 lessons with an accredited driving instructor will also count towards 3 for 1 hours where one hour with an accredited driving instructor will count for 3 logbook hours. Therefore after completing all 3 for 1 hours and the Safer Drivers Course, learner drivers will only require an additional 70 hours. We also offer a free driving lesson through the keys2drive program that also counts towards 3 for 1 hours. More information on the free lesson can be found at HERE.
