Eurobodalla Shire Council will host a free online workshop to help parents and carers guide learners to become safer drivers.

Council’s road safety officer Kate McDougall said the workshop is run as part of its road safety program in partnership with Transport for NSW.

“This is the first time we are hosting the Learn Safe Workshop online so parents can participate from the comfort and safety of their own home,” she said.

“Teaching someone to drive really can be a happy experience, and research shows that plenty of supervised on-road experience in the first few years of driving reduces the likelihood of crashes.

“The workshop’s aims include giving parents confidence in supervising learner drivers, increasing understanding of the learner driver logbook, demonstrating how to encourage safe driving behaviour, and explaining licencing conditions for learner and provisional licence holders.”

The two-hour webinar on Zoom will start at 6:30 pm on Thursday, 27 August, 2020.

Online registrations close Wednesday, 19 August.
