Safer Drivers Course Provider Training

Currently 22 providers are accredited to deliver the Safer Drivers Course to young learner drivers. The Safer Drivers Course consists of two modules including one three-hour facilitated face-to-face group discussion and one two-hour in-vehicle coaching session on public roads with another learner.


All facilitators and coaches are required to undertake a one day module specific Safer Drivers Course training program, which is provided by Youthsafe on a user pays basis.


Only facilitators and coaches engaged by one of the 22 accredited providers are eligible to participate in Facilitator and Coach training delivered by Youthsafe.
