Youthsafe runs training for both the Coach and Facilitator modules of the NSW Safer Drivers Course. Youthsafe was the exclusive state-level trainer for over three years to providers who offer the Safer Drivers Course to young learner drivers and continues to offer first-rate instructor training for the Safer Drivers program.
Currently 22 providers are accredited to deliver the Safer Drivers Course to young learner drivers. The Safer Drivers Course consists of two modules including a three hour facilitated face-to-face group discussion and a two hour in-vehicle coaching session on public roads with another learner.
The direct delivery of the Course is through facilitators and coaches nominated by their Providers. 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.
