NSW Safer Drivers Course For Learner Drivers

main image

If you're on your NSW Ls and keen to learn more about safer driving behaviours then the Safer Drivers Course is for you.  We run courses in  Queanbeyan, Bega & Merimbula. 

The Course will help you understand more about speed management, gap selection, hazard awareness and safe following distances and prepare you for when you drive unsupervised on your P's.

You will also receive 20 hours of log book credit once you complete the Course.

To be able to attend a Course you must be on your Ls, completed 50 log book driving hours and be under 25.

This is 50 actual hours of on-road driving and does not include the hours that can be accrued through (3 for 1) structured professional instruction.

The Course costs $140, payment must be made at the time of booking.  

On the day

All Course materials will be supplied at the Course and the vehicle will be supplied for the in-vehicle coaching session. Just make sure that you turn up with your licence and your logbook!

Note: Ascent Training Services P/L is an RTO (No. 88096). However, the NSW Safer Drivers Course is NOT a nationally accredited VET course, and completion of the course does not result in receipt of a nationally recognised qualification.

Safer Drivers Course - frequently asked questions

What is the maximum and minimum amount of participants for a Course to be held? 

Module one (the group discussion) will be run by a facilitator and the maximum number of participants is 12. The course can only run if there are a minimum of 6 students. 

Module two (the in-vehicle coaching session) will be delivered by a coach with two learner drivers.

Do I have to complete the Course modules in a particular order?
Yes. Participants must complete module one (the facilitated group discussion), before completing module two (the in-vehicle coaching).

Module two should be completed within one month of module one.

What happens if a learner driver only completes module one?
The 20 log book hours credit will only be available for learners that have completed both modules of the Course within four weeks.

See Booking Terms and Conditions to learn more about our cancellation/rebooking policies.

Can I fail the Course?
No. There is no assessment or pass/ fail component of the Safer Drivers Course.

However, participants must complete both Course modules to be eligible for the 20 hour log book credit in their learner driver log book.

How will the 20 hours credit be recorded in my log book after I complete the Course?
As you complete each module the facilitator or coach will enter the details and sign-off the Course completion in your logbook on page 110 - 'Structured Lesson Record Keeper and Safer Drivers Course Record'.

In addition, the driving coach will enter 20 hours credit in the 'Driver experience record' section of your log book so you can keep an accurate running total of your log book driving hours.

What happens if I have a log book that was issued before July 2013?
You won't need to get a new log book.

We will complete and sign an insert for page 110 - 'Structured Lesson Record Keeper and Safer Drivers Course Record' of your log book
