In 2015, we were very lucky to receive a $5000 SGIC Community Grant to help cover the cost of instructors, materials, resources and excursions. This has allowed us to deliver a great Driver Education program as part of a SACE Stage 1 Integrated Learning unit.
The Wiltja Driver Education Program requires a long term commitment to school attendance and engagement. The program involves a number of steps:
support to obtain the identification documents required by Service SA to issue a Learner's Permit (Ls)
classroom-based sessions to learn the road rules in preparation for sitting the Ls test
sitting the theory test and obtain Ls
75 hours of supervised driving (60 day hours + 15 night hours) with accredited driving instructors
completion of Competency-Based Training (CBT) logbook
final driving assessment to issue Certificate of Competence for Provisional Licence (Ps)
Hazard Perception test
In addition to these elements, the Driver Education Program also covers a range of topics to help students protect themselves and others on the road:
driving in the country and on unsealed roads
infant/child car restraint workshops run by the Australian Red Cross
the 'Fatal Five'
Drink and Drug Driving
Driving without a seatbelt
