Seatbelts

Learner Drivers

A reminder for learner drivers and their parents to wear seatbelts using the slogan - "If you want a future in this game you've got to learn to restrain yourself".
Parental involvement and support is crucial in helping learner drivers get their 120 hours practice. Here we see, in a light-hearted way, how parents can support their children's driving practice.

 

More than 300 young drivers aged 18 – 25 have lost their lives in Victoria in the last 10 years – representing just less than one in four or 23% of drivers lives lost in Victoria in this period.

In 2018, 14% of drivers who lost their lives were aged between 18 and 25 years, with this age group only representing around 10% of Victorian licence holders.
