Lloyd Rees shows the way for learner drivers

Shoalhaven City Council is taking action to improve the skills of learner drivers across the Shoalhaven through the delivery of educational programs influenced by artist Lloyd Rees.

 

The Graduated Licensing Scheme Parent Workshop and the Learner Log Book Run both offer support and advice on how best to deal with the recent changes in the licensing system, including the increase of speed limit for learner drivers.

 

The Lloyd Rees Learner Log Book Run was developed by Shoalhaven City Council and is supported by the NSW Police Shoalhaven Area Command. It is designed to help Learner Drivers complete the compulsory 120 hours of driving experience require to get their provisional License.

 

Councils Road Safety Officer, Kathy Wiseham said “The Lloyd Rees Learner Log Book Run provides young drivers and their supervisors the opportunity to participate in a planned drive which follows a route that includes a range of driving experiences and sites that Lloyd Rees painted, including The Road to Berry and A South Coast Road.”

 

“A driver reviver site will be set up at the Lloyd Rees Reserve only metres from where he painted many of his works. The activity is designed to help Learner Drivers complete the compulsory 120 hours of driving experience require to get their provisional License and add a cultural element by exhibiting the Lloyd Rees painting sites along the way.

 

 “It’s important to educate young people early in their driving career about behavioural issues that could one day save their lives.” Mrs Wiseham said.

 

The next Graduated Licensing Scheme workshop will be held on Wednesday 8 May in Nowra and the next log book run will be held on Saturday 17 May starting in Nowra. Learners must have at least 30 hours driving experience in their log book to participate.

 

Bookings are essential and can be made by phoning Kathy Wiseham on (02) 4429 3484 or emailing wisehamk@shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au.
