Year 10 Keys Please
The VicRoads Keys Please program offers information and practical ideas for Year 10 students on how to best use the learning to drive period, get 120 hours of practice and become safe drivers. This session links well with the F2D Year 11 Workshop and together they help to prepare young people to be safer road users. This is maximised when these two sessions are supported by other road safety education activities in the classroom and followed up in Year 12 with a Looking After Our Mates session.
Keys Please is a free education session run by a VicRoads presenter in schools during the day. The session takes only 45 minutes and there are plenty of opportunities for students to ask questions. Parents and anyone that helps learners get at least 120 hours of driving practice are also invited to attend.
At a Keys Please session students find out about:
- Why young drivers are at risk and why driving experience is so important.
- The importance of learning to drive in stages – from simple tasks on quiet roads to more difficult drives in all sorts of road, weather and traffic conditions.
- The importance of developing a positive partnership between learners and their parents, including tips for managing stress.
- Working with driving instructors.
- Risks for new drivers.
