Live and learn

Young drivers are at high risk of road accidents.

THE TAC is a great jumping off point for young drivers or their parents who want to learn more about road safety.
The best idea when learning to drive is to get as much information as possible – whether you are a learner driver, a parent of a young learner driver or a supervisor.
The TAC has listed some helpful websites and information below:
* Lessons from the Road – This is a VicRoads online resource for learner drivers and their parents or supervisors. It provides tips and advice on helping the learner driver clock up 120 hours of driving practice.
* Learner Kit – A guide for learner drivers and parents. This is provided when you get your learner’s permit and is available from VicRoads. It includes helpful information, the learner log book and a guide for supervising drivers.
* Keys Please – This is a school-based, Learner Driver Information forum which emphasises the need for driving practice in a range of road, traffic and weather conditions to develop safe driving skills. Keys Please is presented by trained facilitators who provide relevant information on learning to drive for supervisors and learner drivers. Sessions are advertised throughout schools or contact VicRoads for more information.
* School curriculum – Traffic Safety Essentials for Young Road Users. Available in secondary schools and focusing on Year 10 students, this program covers a range of road safety topics, including safe driving, risks and hazards, alcohol and drugs, distractions when driving, fatigue and travel choices.
* Driving schools located in your area – Look up driving schools and your location on your computer or look up driving schools in the Yellow Pages.
