Rotorua District Council (RDC) is offering another free Driver Directions course to young drivers wanting to get valuable driving skills and practice on a safe off-road environment.
The free course, which would normally cost in excess of $300, is on Tuesday 3 July at Taupo Motorsport Park.
Driver Directions involves qualified driving instructors and police taking participants through practical driving skills, accompanied by their parents or caregivers.
RDC Road Safety Coordinator Jodie Lawson says Driver Directions is a valuable opportunity for teenagers on learners' and restricted licences to practice their driving skills in a safe off-road environment.
"Involving parents means both students and parents become better educated. It's a free course but a valuable investment in young drivers' and their parents' lives.
"Road crashes are the single greatest killer of 15 to 24 year olds, and the leading cause of their permanent injury."
There are limited spaces on Driver Directions so those wanting to participate should register with Jodie Lawson by calling her on 027 454 5713 as soon as possible.
Drivers must have a learner or restricted licence, their own car, and have a parent or guardian with them at all times when they take the course.
