Rotary WA Young Drivers Awareness Program

Geraldton Rotary Clubs in partnership with the RAC and the WA Police are working together to decrease serious injury and deaths in our young drivers who represent a disproportionate number of deaths on our roads.

The program, the first for regional areas, will be held in Geraldton at Towns Football Club on Wednesday 18 March commencing at 9.25am sharp.

120  Y10 and Y11 students will receive education on how to to prepare them better for the challenges faced upon getting their drivers licence.

The program is made up of 6 interactive sessions which are run concurrently through the day, 9.30am – 2pm.

  • Police-The law and driving
  • RAC- My wheels – Insurance,Finances, ANCAP ratings
  • Plan B – Choices- social gatherings, back up plans, drugs, alcohol and Fatigue
  • Crash survivor–One moment can change your life
  • Distraction, risk and hazards– Inattention, risks and hazards
  • Braking distances- Practical demonstration , children will not be in any vehicle

The program has been designed to be interactive, thought provoking, confronting, challenging and fun.

Why is  Rotary so passionate about this program?  We care about the lives of young people.  Regionally we see too any fatalities on our roads, we have witnessed the heartbreak from families and friends when losing a loved one. 

If we can provide education, then hopefully we raise awareness of safety and we can save more lives on our road.
