A six-level course offered by the Rotary clubs of Geraldton will help educate the next generation of young motorists as they prepare for their driver’s licence when students from seven schools gather at Towns Football Club next week.

On Thursday, March 9 and Friday, March 10, students from Dongara District High School, Geraldton Senior High School, Champion Bay Senior High School, Morawa District High School, WA College of Agriculture Morawa, Mullewa District High School and Geraldton Christian College will attend the Rotary WA Driver Education regional program in its seventh year in Geraldton.

WA Police will provide information on law with an emphasis on P-platers while crash survivor Danny Harrison will describe his crash story in vivid detail to deter poor driving decisions.

As well, a hazards distraction program will show students how to react to risky situations, they’ll learn how to check under the bonnet for issues, know the correct stopping distances, how to buy a car and refresh their first aid knowledge.

Geraldton Rotary Clubs RWADE program aims to reduce the number of road fatalities and serious injuries to young drivers in the Mid West Gascoyne region.
