Parents and Guardians

Looks like your beginner driver’s school is participating in the Road Smart program.

Below, you’ll find support material for supervising a beginner driver, including a digital Road Smart program consent form that can be lodged online.

What’s next? 

After you lodge your consent online:

  1. An email will be sent to your beginner driver the next business day.
  2. Your beginner driver will then complete their registration for the Road Smart program.
  3. Once registration is complete, your beginner driver will then have access to the Road Smart eLearning. 
  4. Via the eLearning platform, your beginner driver can then redeem their free driving lesson (if not already participating in an off-road driving lesson as a school excursion). 

What’s included in Road Smart?

Delivered through schools, the Road Smart program provides Year 10 (or equivalent) students with access to:
  • an interactive classroom session
  • short eLearning modules 
  • an in-car session (either off-road at a driver training site, or on-road with a VicRoads approved driving instructor).

Resources for supervisors

As a supervising driver, you'll also have access to Road Smart eLearning, providing practical information to help build on these coaching skills. This free resource provides helpful tips on:

  • teaching a teenager to drive
  • keeping calm and giving constructive feedback
  • planning a process using a staged approach
  • the importance of completing a minimum of 120 hours of quality supervised driving.
