Free driving lessons through the Australian Government’s keys2drive program.
** IMPORTANT UPDATE **
THE KEYS 2 DRIVE PROGRAM IS ENDING ON 31ST MARCH 2023. CONTACT US TO BOOK YOUR FREE DRIVING LESSON BEFORE THE PROGRAM ENDS.
keys2drive is a revolutionary approach to learning road safety and the free driving lesson is an opportunity for learner drivers, driving instructors and parent/supervisors to learn together. We are accredited keys2drive instructors and encourage our students to take part in this exciting, Government funded initiative aimed at teaching driver safety for beginner drivers.
About the program
Your free keys2drive free lesson goes for 60 minutes. During this time our accredited keys2drive driving instructor will explain the keys2drive learning approach called ‘Find Your Own Way’ and offer examples of how it can be used when learning to drive. The remaining lesson time includes a practical demonstration of these skills being used and taught, and you will be driving.
Learner drivers will receive training in the best ways to practice, helping them gain the confidence they need to prepare for safe P plate driving and beyond.
The keys2drive free lesson is not intended to replace normal driving lessons. It should complement them by empowering learner drivers to become safer drivers.
There are benefits for parents and supervisors who will come away with tools to help their learner drivers achieve a good foundation for lifelong safe driving.
It is recommended that the learner has had around 10 hours driving experience before attending the keys2drive lesson.
