Who is the free lesson for?
The free lesson is for anyone on their L Plates, together with their parent or supervisor (the supervisor is the fully licensed driver who usually accompanies the learner when they drive). Only learner drivers are currently eligible to apply. To be eligible for a Keys2Drive free lesson the learner driver MUST hold an Australian learners permit. Holders of international driving permits upgrading to an Australian licence are NOT eligible for a Keys2Drive free lesson.
Should the parent or supervisor attend?
Yes, attendance is compulsory. The parent or supervisor is learning as well. The free lesson gives them realistic confidence to help the learner safely take control of their own learning. If you're a supervisor, you should encourage your learner to apply.
What happens in the free lesson?
During the 60 minute free lesson, your Keys2Drive accredited driving instructor will run through the Keys2Drive learning approach and offer examples of how you can use it when learning to drive. The rest of the time can be used as practice time or to further explain the coaching approach, whichever is most helpful to you.
What do I need to bring to the lesson?
Learner drivers need to bring their learner licence, log book and Keys2Drive ID. Parent or supervisors must bring a current Open Australian drivers licence which they have held for 12 months or more.
What if I can't make it to the lesson?
If you are unable to attend the free lesson you have booked, contact your driving instructor and let them know at least 24 hours in advance. If you provide 24 hours notice, you will be able to re-schedule the lesson. If you do not provide sufficient notice of cancellation, your driving instructor has the right to lodge your ID Number for payment resulting in a forfeit of your free lesson under this program.

The aim of the Keys2Drive learning approach is to help P platers achieve the six month - zero harm target; in other words, drive for six months without hurting themselves or others. It's a goal designed to build the skills necessary to drive safely for life.
