Too many young drivers lose their lives on the road. Help us make a difference.
Did you know that learner drivers must complete only a minimum of 50 supervised driving hours prior to being granted a WA driver’s licence. Newly qualified drivers are, by far, the most at-risk road user group in WA. Nearly 50% of all young Australian deaths are due to road traffic incidents.
Worse still, a quarter of people killed in vehicle incidents last year weren’t wearing seatbelts. We need to do more to protect young drivers and other road users. Education and awareness are essential. But to make a change, we need to make some noise.
So, join us in launching National Young Driver’s Day: a campaign to share crucial road safety messages and dispel the myths that lead to many of today’s catastrophic accidents among young road users.
Under our first campaign theme ILEAD, National Young Drivers Day or NYDD is designed to achieve the following:
Increase the number of supervised driving hours from 50 to 100 in Western Australia. We believe this will improve road safety knowledge among young drivers.
Lobby with us to the Road Safety Commission to increase the number of supervised driving hours to past a driving test.

We are supporters of various community initiatives in Western Australia. National Road Safety Week is one where we will continue to raise the profile of best practice on the road – whether pedestrian or motorist. For more info you can visit – Link for National Road Safety Week
Dispel the myths that many young people hold on stopping distances, drink driving and not wearing a seatbelt. Take part in our social media campaign by sharing our stories on the risks young people face on the road every day.
We encourage driving schools, youth legal services, colleges and charities to join us.
We’re looking for like-minded organisations passionate about young driver road safety. If you want to be a force for change, improve your company’s social impact and have your voice heard, we want to hear from you.
