Code of Practice
Keys2drive is an Australian Automobile Association (AAA) road-safety initiative, funded by the Australian Government and supported by Australia’s state and territory-based motoring clubs. Keys2drive aims to minimise the risk of harm for novice drivers and their passengers, particularly in the first six months of solo driving.
Keys2drive-accredited driving instructors must follow a Code of Practice, which states clearly the standard of conduct required by the AAA. Under the Code of Practice, Keys2drive-accredited driving instructors must exhibit a number of behaviours at all times; these include, but are not limited to:
- Having a genuine commitment to road safety and a willingness to share their training and knowledge to help novice drivers become safer solo drivers
- Behaving with the utmost integrity
- Complying with all child safety standards, which includes holding a valid Working with Children Check or state/territory equivalent
- Exceeding the minimum teaching standard expected of an instructor with a Certificate IV in Driving Instruction
- Utilise a five-star ANCAP rated vehicle that is no more than seven years old. More information on ANCAP ratings can be found at www.ancap.com.au
- Being a proactive and responsible ambassador for Keys2drive
- Learning through formal and informal education, including Keys2drive professional development activities
- Modelling excellent driving behaviour to all clients
- Following professional business and driver training industry practices
- Using social media responsibly and professionally
