Road Trip Project

Are you preparing or have you just got your licence? Would you like more confidence in driving?

Central Goldfields Shire Council and the Traffic Accident Commission (TAC) are running a joint program to help young drivers understand driving behaviours and increase hazard awareness.

Through individual assessment and small group activities, you can develop your knowledge and increase their practical driving skills and experience.

Including individual assessment and small group activities the program helps participants develop their knowledge and increase their practical driving skills and experience.

With a focus on preparing and supporting road users through the initial stages of driving, the Road Trip Project has been developed to target:

  • Basic driving skills
  • Road Safety messaging targeted at young people
  • Community engagement, links and responsibilities
  • Understanding road user behaviours
  • Hazard perception skills
  • Relationship building

Participants can take part in:

  • Small group sessions
  • Hands on driving skills (conditions apply)
  • Design and development of road safety messaging targeted at their peers
  • Excursions
  • Access to a paid VicRoads Hazard Perception Test on completion of the program

Participants need to complete four, four-hour sessions as part of the program.

These can be delivered in a week, or over the course of a month, and will be in small group sessions of up to five people. Alternative delivery options can be discussed to suit participants needs. 

To get involved you do not need a Learner’s Permit or driver's licence. However, on-road driving skills sessions will be delivered in an alternative format.
