Teaching a young person to drive can be a daunting task, but several council workshops and hands-on driving events may help parents of learner drivers prepare their teenagers for safer driving experiences.

Council’s road safety officer, Melanie Lausz said parents and supervisors of novice drivers had a crucial role to play in contributing to make roads safer.

“Introducing your learner to as much driving time as possible ‘in real driving situations’ is imperative to any young driver in improving their confidence, driving skills and knowledge,” Ms Lausz said.

“But so too is varying the different conditions they may encounter on the road.

“And as rules and regulations change, not everyone is confident about teaching our youngest road users the skills, knowledge and correct training methods to progress through the NSW Graduated Licensing Scheme (GLS).”

Council will hold a free two-hour GLS Parent Workshop on Wednesday, February 24 from 6pm at the Moss Vale Civic Centre.

The workshop provides practical advice on supervision, completing the log book and new licence conditions.

Participants also learn the importance of teaching low risk driving techniques and the role of parents in establishing parameters and support for provisional licence holders. Learner drivers are also encouraged to attend.

Council will also hold a free Learner Log Book Run on Sunday, March 6 at Moss Vale.

“The Learner Log Book Run is a great opportunity for learner drivers to cover some of the many topics included in the Learner Driver Log Book and clock up some valuable driving experience hours,” Ms Lausz said.

Council holds four free two-hour GLS Parent Workshops and Logbook Runs

throughout the year in a bid to help the shire’s young drivers gain more experience and help prepare them for solo driving.

Both events are supported by the Roads and Maritime Services and bookings are essential. Registration forms can be collected from council’s Moss Vale office, council libraries, the Welby Motor Registry or download a copy at: 梧桐夜网wsc.nsw.gov419论坛/services/road-safety.
