UPPER Hunter parents and supervisors are invited to attend a free two-hour workshop this month to learn simple steps on how to teach learner drivers.

The workshop will take place at Upper Hunter Shire Council’s Administration Centre, 135 Liverpool Street, Scone, on Tuesday, March 12, from 5.30pm.

Mayor Wayne Bedggood said teaching someone to drive could be a happy experience.

“Parents and supervisors play a vital role in helping young drivers gain the skills and experience they need to be safe on the road,” he explained.

“This course has been designed to show parents and supervisors how to better plan driving lessons, tips for using the learner driver log book, and the importance of providing constructive feedback.”

Bookings are essential and can be made by phoning 0429 664 036.
