    This event has passed Get Tickets

    Event description

    This workshop aims to give you a background on the risks young people face on the road (as drivers and passengers of novice drivers). Road trauma statistics indicate Provisional Licence drivers face the highest risk of being involved in crashes in their first year of driving. We’ll discuss the challenges of teaching a young person how to drive and give you some tips on how you can partner with your teen to make sure they have the tools they need to make good choices and stay safe. 

    Road Safety Education Limited (RSE) is the country's leading provider of youth road safety education - to date over 775,000 students have participated in our flagship RYDA program for high school students across Australia and New Zealand. With a commitment to the delivery of evidence-based road safety education, RSE is guided by an internationally respected Advisory Council. Throughout Tasmania, the Tasmanian Government's Department of State Growth and Rotary Tasmania work together to provide access to RYDA for nearly every Year 10 student in the state. Participation in RYDA provides learners with 5 hours of Learner Driver Logbook hours. 

    The importance of parents and their role in keeping their teens safe throughout the many stages of learning to drive is well documented. However, they are not often given all the tools for the job. Research shows that the way parents engage with their teens through the learn-to-drive journey can have a significant impact when it comes to creating safer drivers who take less risks. RSE, through the DriveCoach program aims to equip parents and carers with the tools they need and support them on this very important journey. 

    This workshop is supported by the Tasmanian Government's Department of State Growth and Rotary Tasmania, this event is part of National Road Safety Week

    This practical workshop which updates parents on latest research and road safety approaches, outlines some of the conversations and strategies our facilitators share with their teens at RYDA and gives them an opportunity to ask questions and get advice from the experts.
