Statistically, learner drivers are the safest drivers on the road. The moment they get their Ps and begin solo driving, their risk jumps dramatically.
Keys2drive is designed to help improve driver safety by fostering a partnership between learners, their supervising drivers and professional driving instructors.
For driving instructors, this is an opportunity to take a leadership role. Becoming a Keys2drive-accredited driving instructor enables you to provide an extra level of support for learners, adding your skills and experience to this exciting initiative in Australian driver safety.
Keys2drive is an Australian Automobile Association (AAA) initiative, funded nationally by the Australian Government and supported by Australia's state and territory-based motoring clubs.
Keys2drive comprises three key parts:
- One free professional lesson by an accredited driving instructor for learner drivers (accompanied by their parent/supervisor). This lesson provides information and strategies for managing the early solo driving.
- This website, which offers rich learning experiences and supporting information for young drivers and their supervisors to supplement what they learn in the free lesson, as well as comprehensive support and resources for driving instructors.
- An accreditation scheme for driving instructors who wish to be part of the program, involving initial training and ongoing professional development and operating in accordance with a code of practice (developed in consultation with the driver training industry).
