What is the ACT Safer Driver Course?

You are most at risk of having an accident on the road when you move from learning to driving on your own. This course aims to help you develop safe driving behaviours and anticipate hazardous situations. This understanding will reduce your road risk when transitioning to independent driving on your P’s. In addition, completing this course will give you 20hrs of credit towards completing your ACT learner logbook!


This course is available for learner drivers 3 months after first obtaining their ACT learner driver licence. You also need 30 hours of driving experience and had to be under the age of 25 when your ACT learner driver licence was issued.

ACT Safer Driver Course Structure:

It consists of a theory component of 2.5 hours in a workshop, followed by a 1-hour practical driving component.



1. Become a smarter, more confident and competent driver before you pass your test and start driving alone.

2. Reduce your risk of being involved in an accident when you start driving alone.

3. Get 20hrs of ACT logbook experience for completing the course; you get your licence sooner!

The objective of the on road drive is to allow the learner drivers to practice low risk driving techniques, provide feedback to each other, compare their experiences and to then observe a professional driver conduct low risk driving techniques. This process allows learner drivers to practice and observe techniques which if they apply in their future driving will reduce their risk of being involved in an incident on the road.
