PARENTS and supervisors of learner drivers can learn how to give effective driving instruction at two free workshops being provided by NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) in Armidale and Glen Innes next week.
Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall is encouraging parents and supervisors of learner drivers to attend the Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers workshops.
“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,” he said.
“The two-hour workshop includes 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.”
Workshop details are as follows:
- Armidale workshop on Monday, 1 June, at The Armidale School (TAS) from 5.30pm
- Glen Innes workshop on Wednesday, 3 June, at the Glen Innes Services Club from 5.30pm
Bookings for both workshops are essential and are being taken now via phone on (02) 6650 1969 or online via www.etcltd.com.au/rms
