The head-turning new Teensafe car can be seen regularly around the Shire reminding parents and teenage drivers of the popular safe driver courses for L and P plate drivers. The Commodore was donated to TeenSafe and ably prepared by Teensafe volunteer and Fleet Manager, Ian Boardman.
The car is mainly driven by Ian and Information brochures are usually available on the car when parked in various locations. TeenSafe Courses are available in school holidays at Moruya Speedway. The last course was fully booked out and bookings have begun for the next scheduled course during the October school holidays.

TeenSafe aims to give 'L' and 'P' plate drivers basic driving skills and experiences in a safe and controlled environment. 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. TeenSafe 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. The program consists of both theory and practical elements and teaches basic skills as well as safety aspects of driving.
The program is 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 able to concentrate on basic driving skills without the added distraction of normal road traffic.
Vehicle maintenance and safety checks are demonstrated and discussed.
Volunteers are always being sought to assist in all aspects of the organisation of TeenSafe Courses, from administration duties to driver training. No experience is necessary and all training will be provided for prospective volunteers.
If you enjoy driving and interacting with young people then volunteering with TeenSafe could be for you. Volunteers are welcome to join Teensafe so have a chat with Ian when you see him or go to www.teensafemoruya.org
