Learner Drivers To Invited Book Your Free Keys2Drive Lesson Now

Caitlin Kerr - Tuesday, January 20, 2015

ACT and NSW learner drivers are invited to take advantage of the new keys2drive national learner driver safety program and receive a free lesson with a keys2drive accredited driving instructor.

Over the next 12 – 18 months, across Australia, keys2drive will deliver 200,000 free lessons funded by the Federal Government

The free lesson uses a ‘train the trainer’ model with the accredited driving instructor assisting the supervisor/parent to guide the learner driver to adopt safe driving practices. It does this through face to face practical information and instruction on how they can most effectively assist in the training of their learner drivers.

keys2drive provides a different approach to learning to drive – a coaching method called ‘find your own way’ which encourages the learner driver to make their own decisions rather than always being told what to do. This technique assists a learner driver to become P plate ready. Over time, this approach will create a new culture of safer driving.

The Australian Automobile Association and its constituent motoring clubs are delighted to be working in partnership with the Federal Government and the driver training industry to implement the keys2drive program.

For Canberra and Queanbeyan, we have three instructors who have been keys2drive accredited and are available now for free lessons.

National Driving Academy encourages learner drivers and their parents or supervisors to log on to the keys2drive website www.keys2drive.com.au, to book for a free lesson now.
