25.2.2013

The innovative driver training program run by the Australian Automobile Association (AAA), keys2drive, is celebrating the delivery of 150,000 free lessons to novice drivers across Australia.

"This program makes young people better drivers and safer drivers," AAA Executive Director Andrew McKellar said.

keys2drive was developed by the AAA and is funded by the Australian Government.

"The program is offered free of charge to learners, allowing young drivers from all walks of life to learn new skills and new theories to stay safe on the roads," he said.

"This is a terrific milestone and I congratulate all learners and instructors who have supported the program," Mr McKellar said.

"The main difference with a keys2drive lesson is that the supervisor must also attend, allowing them to pick up new skills on how to coach their student," he said.

"keys2drive also requires driving instructors to undertake training to improve their skills before becoming accredited for the program," Mr McKellar said.
