- A history
TeenSafe has been providing
safe-driver training courses for teenagers since 1999 at the Surfair
Motor Sport Complex, Moruya.
Hundreds of our local Shire teenagers have sucessfully completed the
We hope the courses have contributed to behavioural change and safer
driving in our local teenage population and therefore safer roads
for all of us.
There is limited public transport in our shire and cars are the major
form of transport. That is why TeenSafe has a philosophy of getting
teenage drivers behind-the-wheel with a trained instructor in a safe
environment to practice safe driving techniques and vehicle awareness.
TeenSafe hopes to enter a second decade with a fine-tuned course,
an updated fleet of vehicles and further support of our community.
The first ten years would not have been possible without a dedicated
band of volunteers and support from sectors of our community. So,
a big thank you to supporters over the years such as Eurobodalla Shire
Council, Surfair Motor Sport Club, Lions Club, Moruya Markets, Bay
Beginners and to Teensafe volunteers past & present.
to Rick & Raelene Meyer who have looked after administration for
years, to Tony Payne, Jim Jones and to the stalwart instructor Jeff
Murphy. Jeff brought skills in motor vehicle dynamics to the course
as he has had decades of experience in motor sport events. ( There
is a rumour that Jeff could be a contender for the record for the
world's longest serving race car driver - go Jeff ! )
Request for Support - as a volunteer organisation,
to continue and to improve, Teensafe would appreciate some assistance
- if you would like to become a volunteer Instructor, we are looking
for mature experienced drivers, we will train you.

>> Helpers - if you don't want to
be an instructor, you may be able to help maintain or clean 8 cars,
or assist with mountains of paperwork.
TeenSafe courses are conducted

the Moruya Airport. Courses generally operate in school holidays but
