The Safer Drivers Course is designed to work in conjunction with the current NSW learner driver logbook system.
The Transport for NSW course is designed to establish safer driving practices for learner drivers under the age of 25, who are statistically most at risk of a fatal accident once they get their provisional licence. The course is educational, enjoyable and will help you develop safe driving practices that will go beyond your licence test.
