NSW Driving Tests to Recommence - Effective 1.7.20 READ



NSW Police Posted the Following on its Facebook Page 6.4.20 Re: Driving Lessons & COVID-19

A reasonable excuse includes travelling for the purposes of work where you cannot work from home, so driving instructors can leave their house for their work – to teach people how to drive.Learner drivers could also continue to drive with a supervising family member for any of the listed reasonable excuses for leaving the house – for example, driving to the supermarket.

#COVID19 Frequently asked questions

Q: Can I take a learner driver for a lesson?

A: Under the Public Health Orders, a person cannot leave their place of residence without a reasonable excuse.

We consider that it would be a reasonable excuse for a person to leave their house to receive driving lessons (either from a driving instructor or a member of their family), given that this is a learning activity that cannot be done from home and is akin to the listed reasonable excuse of travelling to attend an educational institution where you cannot learn from home.

Bstreetsmart


Bstreetsmart is an injury prevention program hosted by Westmead Hospital's Trauma Service in response to the fact adolescent drivers represent only 14% of licence holders but are involved in 21% of fatal crashes.

More than 26,000 high school students visit Quodos Bank Arena in Sydney over three days every year to witness simulated crash scenarios and hear from road trauma survivors as part of a road safety initiative designed to encourage young people to make safer choices as a driver and passenger.

Young drivers are most at risk in the first six months of driving solo on their P-Plates and represent approximately 25% of hospital road trauma admissions.

Bstreetsmart posted a video to YouTube of one of their live events which provides teens and their parents with a realistic look at the trauma caused by road crashes and gives them information and strategies in an attempt to reduce serious injuries and deaths. Not alI students get the opportunity to attend such an important event, so to view the full 3.5 hour program click on the following link: https://youtu.be/6EFfj34S9ZA

Below is a 22 minute clip of the crash recreation component with commentary by Dr. Ken Harrison who is a trauma doctor at Westmead Hospital. #Care2DriveAware
