Parents and supervisors of local learner drivers are encouraged to attend a free workshop in Parkes next week, on Tuesday 21 May at Cooke Park Pavilion.

Commencing at 6pm, the two-hour Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers workshop will offer parents and supervisors practical advice on how to provide the most effective driving practice for learner drivers.

Parkes Shire Council’s Road Safety and Injury Prevention Officer, Melanie Suitor, said parents and supervisors of learner drivers have a crucial role to play in making our roads safe which is why Parkes Shire Council have teamed up with Transport for NSW to hold this workshop.

“The workshop covers the licensing system, how to use the Learner Driver Logbook (including the use of digital logbooks), license conditions for learner and P-plate drivers, the benefits of on-road driving sessions, tips on supervising a learner driver and more.

“Parents and supervisors who have attended this workshop in the past have found that it boosted their confidence, helped them better plan driving sessions and allowed them to share their experiences with other parents and supervisors,” Ms Suitor said.

Light refreshments will be available during the workshop.

Bookings are essential and can be made by calling Ms Suitor on (02) 6861 2364.
