Driver Licensing & Training

ARSC conference 2016

EXTENDED ABSTRACT: Keys for Life is a School Drug Education and Road Aware (SDERA) initiative embedded in Western Australia's Licensing and School Graduation systems. A 2015 evaluation revealed over 60% of secondary schools are consistently implementing the 10-lesson program. Teachers, parents, students and stakeholders responded positively on a range of measures about program efficacy and about engaging in more than the legislated supervised driving hours. The program provides a best practice model by including, evidence-based curriculum, professional learning, assessment, parent initiatives and connections to Government policies.
