The background to the Safer Drivers Course

Written by Geoff Watt

With statistics showing that young drivers, aged 17-25 years, are more likely to be involved in crashes resulting in death or injury than other drivers, the NSW licensing system is reviewed regularly to improve young driver safety.

The NSW Government announced the establishment of a Board of independent road safety experts (‘Board’) to develop a new course for learner drivers that aims to improve the safety of young novice drivers. Learner drivers who complete the Safer Drivers Course will have a reduction in the required number of logged driving hours from 120 to 100 hours.

Is a Safer Drivers Course the same as a driving lesson?

Written by Nicola Elkington

Many learner drivers assume that the Safer Drivers Course is the same as a driving lesson, but they’re actually not!

In a traditional driving lesson your instructor will focus on the driving skills you need to acquire in order to pass your driving test, including: 

  • The mechanics of driving and controlling your car – steering, road positioning and changing gears
  • Understanding and following the road rules – how and when to merge, using roundabouts and when to give way at intersections
  • Parking skills – parallel parking, 45 degree parking and reverse parking
  • General driving skills – three point turns and hill starts

Rules about Mobile Phones and Driving

Written by Geoff Watt

During the Safer Drivers Course, students have a chance to ask questions.  The question which comes up every single time is around mobile phones, and what is permitted.

First we should clarify just what is allowed for Learner Drivers (or those on their Provisional Licence),

Make or receive audio phone call – No
Use music or audio functions – No
Use as a driver's aid (e.g. navigation) – No
Apple CarPlay / Android Auto – No

Restricted licences holders including learner, P1 and P2 drivers and riders are not permitted to use their phone at all while driving or riding. This includes use of hands-free and Bluetooth functions.

New South Wales's Strict New Coronavirus Social Distancing Rules Explained

 

Here we try to answer some of the most common questions people have about the new laws based on the information, though these answers should not be treated as legal advice.

Can I visit my romantic partner if we don’t live together?

Although legislation would suggest the answer is no, police commissioner Mike Fuller said on Wednesday that yes, you are allowed. This is considered to come under the “care” exemption.
