Journeys : August September 2009
Life on the move Tasmania and will be introduced in other states and territories from late 2009. Unlocking keys2drive in Tasmania k keys2drive has been developed by the Australian Automobile Association (AAA), the RACT and other motoring clubs around Australia, with Australian Government funding and the support of the driver training industry. To help reduce the high crash risk of young drivers, keys2drive fosters the relationship between the learner driver and their supervisor under the guidance of an accredited professional driving instructor, through a free lesson paid for by the Australian Government. During this lesson, information and strategies for managing the first stages of solo driving are provided to the learner and their supervisor. This is supported by access to a website incorporating information, education and interactive learning games. We know that learner drivers are the safest drivers on the road, but the moment that they are no longer supervised – when they begin to drive solo – their risk jumps dramatically. This risk remains greatest for the first six months of solo driving. Getting better on-road experience as a learner driver is an extremely important factor in reducing the risk associated with ‘going solo’. By using new learning methods, keys2drive sets out to positively influence young drivers’ behaviour and their approach to solo driving. The program also aims to improve the quality and quantity of supervised learning by helping parents/supervising drivers to be more effective in their driver training role. Learners and supervisors are encouraged to register now on the keys2drive website and book their free keys2drive lesson at www.keys2drive.com.au eys2drive, the new national learner driver program that aims to make newly-licensed drivers safer, commenced recently in Why an RACT car loan could save you thousands of dollars T he chances of getting a great deal on a new car right now are better than ever, but if you make a bad finance choice, you may well end up paying more than you bargained for.
