Young people aged 18-25 years are about three times more likely to be killed in a car crash than older more experienced drivers - one way to change this is to provide relevant driver safety education for schools.
The TAC has developed a range of school resources which can be taught alongside the core road safety school program.
We have put together a range of secondary school resources aimed at AusVELS (Victorian Essential Learning Standards) VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education). These secondary resources complement the core material for each subject and we have tailored a specific program for each of these subjects:
Other key resources are:
Good practice road safety for young people
Many community groups, schools and the general public are very concerned about the level of road trauma among young drivers, and are motivated to address this.
To support community groups and schools to deliver effective community and school based road safety for young people, the Victorian Community Road Safety Partnership Program and the Victorian Road Safety Education Reference Group arranged for the development of resources to help inform local program development and delivery.
