Now, more than 30 years later, she could see her daughter travelling down the same nervous path. Despite having grown up on a farm, Robyne was not interested in driving – a position reinforced by seeing first-hand the pain and devastation car crashes bought friends and family. “I’m grateful now, as I love the independence that being able to drive affords me. But that makes it easy for me to understand my daughter’s reluctance in wanting to get her licence,” Robyne says. She and her 21-year-old daughter Kahlia were among the first people to undertake the new, free keys2drive driver education course, aimed at giving parents or other adult supervisors more confidence w ith their young charges. “K ahlia had been on her L-plates since she was 17 and wasn’t confident in negotiating traffic and risky situations,” Robyne says. “ Before the keys2drive program, she had been in the car with a supervising driver very few times and only in quiet, low- traffic areas like back roads around home and car parks.” Now Kahlia has found her confidence and Robyne is ready for the driving challenges ahead. Kahlia is working through her logbook and aiming to have her P-plates by the end of the year, when she starts her work placement as a student nurse. “ Kahlia went from not wanting to even practise to being proactive in asking to do so and is more confident at driving in new areas,” Robyne says. In a 45-minute practical driving lesson, accredited keys2drive instructors g ive supervisors, often a parent, a range of tips and strategies on how to be effective mentors when teaching others how to drive, ensuring older drivers don’t inadvertently pass on wrong advice or bad habits.
