Teaching learner drivers
Each year we provide two free Graduated Licensing Scheme (GLS) driving workshops for supervisors of learner drivers. These two hour short courses give you tips and tricks on how to guide L-plate drivers to be safe drivers.
Did you know? In 2012, 33% of drivers involved in a speed-related crash in the Randwick City area were aged between 17 and 25.
Supervisors of learner drivers workshop
We hold this free workshop twice a year. The next workshop will be on Tuesday, 4 April, 2017. The workshop is held at the Council's Customer Service Centre, 30 Frances Street, Randwick. The workshop commences at 6.00pm. Bookings are essential. Phone 9093 6786 or email Council's Community Road Safety Officer
The GLS workshop shows the steps needed to get from a Learner licence to a full licence. These workshops are funded by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and hosted by Council.
David Riches, an expert road safety consultant, leads a discussion on teaching beginner drivers to be safer on the road. He presents useful tips on planning for more effective driving practice, updates on the latest licence rules, practical exercises and more.
Examples of topics covered include:
- New laws for learner and P-plate drivers
- How to use the 'Learner driver log book'
- How to plan on-road driving lessons
The next GLS workshop, for supervisors of learner drivers will be mid-year.
