PARENTS and supervisors of learner drivers are invited to a free workshop in Armidale next month which will provide information on the most effective driving practices and teaching techniques.
Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said the Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers workshop provided by Roads and Maritime Services would be held at Armidale’s O’Connor Catholic College on Wednesday, 4 March at 5.30pm.
“Parents and supervisors play a pivotal role in shaping young people’s driving habits and the course has been developed to help them do this job with confidence,” Mr Marshall said.
“The two hour workshops include information about licence conditions for learner and P plate drivers, using the learner driver log book and the importance of constructive feedback.
“The course also reinforces the important role of families in providing ongoing support for young motorists in the early years of driving.
“Parents and supervisors who have attended this course found it boosted their confidence, helped them better plan driving lessons and allowed them to share experiences with other parents and supervisors.”
