Collier, K.

Driver/Rider Training Education – general and other Older Drivers & Road Users Young Drivers

ARSC conference 2018

Safe people is arguably the most difficult component of the Safe System to create positive change, yet safe people are critical to maximise safety on our roads. This presentation will provide an overview of the programs delivered at the METEC Driver Training Centre to three key groups: 1) pre-learner drivers, 2) people living with a disability and 3) drivers towing (e.g. caravan, boat). Insights will include experiences from all three driving groups and the instructors who teach the courses and recommendations to creating safe drivers and safe roads for all road users.
