The Safer Drivers Course is a NSW Government initiative to give learner drivers the skills and knowledge required to be become safer drivers before gaining their license and entering this high risk period. Any learner driver under 25 who has completed at least 50 logbook hours are eligible to complete the course and be credited with a further 20 hours in their logbooks.

  • Internal and external influences behind the wheel
  • How to grow your circle of control
