Speed up your learning
The Safer Drivers Course is a combined theoretical and practical course for under 25 year-old learner drivers who have completed 50 log book driving hours.
The course has been developed by a board of independent road safety experts that considered the latest research in young driver safety and is specifically designed for young learner drivers.
The course involves a three-hour facilitated group discussion on how to manage risks on the road. The second part of the course is a two-hour in-vehicle coaching session to help learner drivers practise a range of safe driving behaviours.
Benefits of attending a Safer Drivers Course
The course aims to provide learner drivers with driving strategies such as speed management, gap selection, hazard awareness and safe following distances so they are more prepared when they drive unsupervised on their provisional licences.
The course also aims to help learners identify situations that will put them at greater risk of a crash and consider strategies that will help avoid them.
Gaining 20 hours of log book credit
After completing the course, a learner will receive 20 hours of credit in their log book, meaning they only need to complete 100 hours of supervised driving outside the course.
If they also do 10 hours of professional driving lessons, they’ll receive a further 20 hours of credit on top of the 10 hours they drive during the lessons.
