Safer Drivers Course

The Safer Drivers Course is available to learner drivers under the age of 25 who have completed at least 50 log book driving hours*. The Course is designed to improve the safety of learner drivers as they progress to a provisional licence and drive unsupervised. Learner drivers who complete the Safer Drivers Course will receive a 20 hour credit in their logged driving hours which reduces the required number of supervised driving hours from 120 to 100 hours.

  • Module 1 is a three hour face-to-face facilitated group discussion conducted with a maximum of 12 and minimum of 6 learner drivers delivered by a facilitator. This component of the Course is to build awareness of risks, decisions and safe driving behaviours.
  • Module 2 is a two hour in-vehicle coaching session with two learner drivers and coach on NSW public roads. This component aims to reinforce and practice low risk driving strategies, as well as, the safe behaviours explored in Module 1.
You MUST bring your NSW Learner Licence and Logbook to both Modules. Food and drink will be provided during Module 1. *Please note: 50 ‘actual’ driving hours, not including 3 for 1 driving instructor led hours.
