Safer Drivers Course

Driving Course GraduatesStatistics have proven that learner drivers under the age of 25 are at most risk of being involved in a fatal crash, particularly within the first few years of getting their P’s.

To be eligible to participate in the Safer Drivers Course you must meet the following criteria:

  • Hold a valid NSW drivers licence
