Free driving lesson to learner drivers

 The Federal Government is providing a free driving lesson to learner drivers as part of a road safety education program.

Keys2drive is the single largest national learner driver safety program to be rolled out in Australia, and the first of its kind undertaken anywhere in the world.


Federal Member for Blaxland, Jason Clare said this Government funded driving program allows learner drivers and their supervisor to participate in a free lesson with an accredited driving instructor.

“The Keys2drive program will help protect lives on the roads and reduce the incidence of road crashes involving young drivers through education.”

“The Australian Government has funded 50,000 driving lessons through the keys2drive program – I encourage all learner drivers to sign up today,” Mr Clare said.

NRMA local Director David Bentham said the NRMA encouraged learner drivers to take full advantage of a free keys2drive lesson with a qualified NRMA Safer Driving School instructor.

“Learning from a qualified professional while your parents are in the car means good habits could be taught from the start,” Mr Bentham said.

“Good habits mean safer driving and they are skills that you keep with you for life.”
