Eurobodalla Shire Council will host a free workshop to help parents and carers teach learner drivers.

Council’s road safety officer, Kate McDougall, said the practical workshop has tips for anyone who supervises L-platers.

“They’ll leave with increased confidence, and a better understanding of the learner driver logbook, how to encourage safe driving, and be able to explain licensing provisions for both L-plates and P-plates,” she said.

“Research shows that plenty of supervised on-road experience in their early years reduces the likelihood of new drivers crashing.”

The workshop will be run as part of council’s road safety program in partnership with Transport for NSW.

It will be held at the Mechanics Institute in Page Street, Moruya, from 6 pm to 8 pm on Thursday, 25 February.

The workshop will be a COVID-19-safe event, and bookings are essential by calling Kate McDougall on 02 4474 1353.
