Learn Drive Survive is an accredited provider of the Transport for NSW Safer Drivers Course. The SDC was created to educate learner drivers under 25 years of age, safer driving habits, skills and techniques.

Learners will explore the behaviours and effective management strategies to become safer drivers. Statistics show that novice drivers between the ages of 17 and 25 are most vulnerable in their first year of solo driving. Research shows that novice drivers are about three (3) times more likely to be involved in a serious injury or fatal crash than the average crash rate for all drivers.

Module 1 helps learner drivers to identify and manage internal and external influences that can impact the skills and ability of novice drivers.
