Secondary School Risk Management & Pre-license Education
Fit To Drive (F2D)
Fit2Drive is a program designed for year 11 students which aims to change attitudes and behaviours towards driving. This program does not teach driving skills.
Fit2Drive gives participants the opportunity to rehearse behaviours and develop problem solving strategies enabling young people to make sound decisions when faced with risky driving situations, whether as a passenger or a driver. This half-day workshop includes presentations by Victoria police and the MFB/CFA.
For more information visit the Fit2Drive website.
Council subsidise $250 towards the cost of the course for secondary schools wishing to run this program. For more information contact Council’s Road Safety Officer on 9688 0200.
Looking After Our Mates (LAOM)
Looking After Our Mates is a free, one hour education session for year 12 students. LAOM aims to reduce the incidence and severity of crashes involving alcohol affected drivers, passengers, riders and pedestrians. The program raises awareness on the effect of alcohol, including the impact on the local community.
It is an interactive program which addresses the road safety implications of drink and drug driving and the effect of alcohol on the body and its performance, by determining the BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration). It also outlines the law and recommends strategies to avoid drink driving and making decisions under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
For more information on LAOM session availability and times please contact Council’s Road Safety Officer on 9688 0200.
