Teensafe driving - making a difference

One local group have declared that enough is enough and have undertaken a commitment to bring quality driver education to our Shire youth. TeenSafe Moruya commenced in 1999 as a request from members of the local community to provide young people with information and practical experiences in safe driving. 'L' and 'P' plate drivers develop driving skills in a controlled environment and under the supervision of trained instructors.

A dedicated group of volunteers conduct TeenSafe driving courses during school holiday periods at the Motor Sports Complex on Donnellys Drive, Moruya. Courses consist of 8 hours of tuition, with a maximum of 6-7 students and dates are set according to demand and volunteer availability. The next Teensafe course is in school holidays on Tues 11 July at Moruya Speedway 10am – 3pm. This course is already fully booked however parents are invited to visit if they are interested in volunteering or booking a teen L or P plater for the next safe driver course. The program consists of both theory and practical elements and teaches basic skills as well as safety aspects of driving with a detailed presentation teaching driving skills in a fun, positive and safe manner with emphasis being placed on slowing down, hazard perception and the consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Tuition is on a 'one to one' basis in the vehicles - all supplied by TeenSafe. Approximately 85% of the course consists of actual driving time and students are of normal road traffic. Vehicle maintenance and safety checks are demonstrated and discussed. For more information visit the Teensafe website
