About Keys2drive

Making safer P-platers and more confident supervisors

Statistically, learner drivers are the safest drivers on the road. But the moment they begin solo driving, their crash risk increases significantly. The Keys2drive program aims to improve driver safety by helping P-platers drive for six months without hurting themselves or others, building a foundation for a life of safe driving. The Keys2drive coaching approach is designed to provide a learning experience that is more real, more thorough and more attuned to the reality of licensed driving.

The Keys2drive program comprises three central initiatives:

1. The free lesson - Keys2drive provides a free lesson, introducing our innovative approach, for learner drivers in Australia.
2. Accreditation of driving instructors - Keys2drive is a professional development and accreditation program for the driving instruction industry.  More and more instructors will gain access to these techniques.
3. Online Support - the Keys2drive website is a rich portal of information and advice. It is designed to guide learner drivers, parents/supervisors and driving instructors through the learning experience.

Each element of the program will be closely evaluated for effectiveness and improved continuously over the coming years.
