- Recognise the links between driver behaviour and increased crash risk
- Learn how to lower the risks they face by adopting time tested low-risk driving behaviours and minimising their on-road risk taking
- Become more resistant to and better equipped against the impacts of peer influence, passenger behaviour and other every day distractions
- Have strategies to help them cope with typical lifestyle pressures (drugs, alcohol, late-night driving, fatigue, etc.) and be better prepared against these risk taking behaviours
- Receive 20 hours of credit towards their logbook
By providing teenagers and young adults a positive and interactive environment for road safety they will gain a solid foundation of low-risk driving strategies and habits. Effectively supporting their future driving habits and their on-road decision making.
