Participants who complete the Safer Drivers Course for learners will receive a bonus of 20 hours credit recorded in their learner driver log book reducing the total logbook requirement from 120 to 100 hrs.
The Course is a combination of theoretical and practical training for under 25 year-old learner drivers who have completed 50 hours of log book driving hours. The Course involves two Modules:
Module One: A three-hour facilitated group discussion on how to manage risks on the road. This will involve a maximum of twelve participants and will be delivered by a facilitator.
Module Two: A two-hour in-vehicle coaching session to develop low-risk driving strategies. This will involve two participants and a coach.
The Course costs $140 which includes both Module One and Two. Courses are generally held fortnightly in the Byron Shire.
