and ‘L’ Teenage Safe Driver Education
TeenSafe aims to give 'L'
and 'P' plate drivers basic driving skills and experiences in a safe
and controlled environment. A dedicated group of volunteers conduct
TeenSafe driving courses during school holiday periods at the Motor
Sports Complex on Donnellys Drive, Moruya.
Courses consist of 8 hours
of tuition, with a maximum of 6-7 students and dates are set according
to demand and volunteer availability. TeenSafe commenced in 1999 as
a request from members of the local community to provide young people
with information and practical experiences in safe driving.
'L' and 'P' plate drivers
develop driving skills in a controlled environment and under the supervision
of trained instructors. The program consists of both theory and practical
elements and teaches basic skills as well as safety aspects of driving.
The program is a detailed
presentation teaching driving skills in a fun, positive and safe manner
with emphasis being placed on slowing down, hazard perception and
the consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Tuition is on a 'one to
one' basis in the vehicles - all supplied by TeenSafe. Approximately
85% of the course consists of actual driving time and students are
able to concentrate on basic driving skills without the added distraction
of normal road traffic.
Vehicle maintenance and
safety checks are demonstrated and discussed.
Volunteers are always being
sought to assist in all aspects of the organisation of TeenSafe Courses,
from administration duties to driver training. No experience is necessary
and all training will be provided for prospective volunteers.
If you enjoy driving and
interacting with young people then volunteering with TeenSafe could
be for you.
