Safer Drivers Course

Enrol for Safer Drivers Course at L Driving School

This course was designed to develop safe driving strategies for learner drivers aged under 25, who are at greater risk of being involved in a fatal accident. Research shows that drivers under 25 years old are 20 times more likely to be involved in serious or fatal accidents. Research also shows that the more supervised practice a learner driver the lower the less likely they are to be involved in an accident.

We work very closely with Australian Driver Trainer Association (ADTA) who is one of the accredited providers of this course to conduct both module 1 and module 2 of the Safer Drivers Course.
