Two Way Street

Two Way StreetOur stunning Two Way Street program is still looking for young people who would like to gain logbook hours in the new school term!

Experienced drivers are available to join young people as they gain much-needed logbook hours, giving the family a handy break from teaching them the ways of the car.

If this sounds great to you, tell any young person you know that might need it! We have so many fantastic volunteers available on this program.

Mid Coast Communities Programs

Thanks to our friends in Mid Coast Communities (MIDCC), the Hub will be hosting two great new FREE two-hour programs, spreading knowledge about road safety.

A workshop for "Teaching Learner Drivers" will offer skills and training of interest for those with a young one about to learn or keen to contribute to our Two Way Street program, helping young people gain those much-needed hours of experience driving. This course is running on Thursday 6th June from 5:30-7pm.

A "Road Safety for Older Road Users" workshop will offer information about drivers licensing at over 75 years, mobility scooters, and how health changes affect our abilities as road users. The course is running on the same day as the MIDCC course, Thursday 6th June, but instead from 10am to 12pm.

For either of these programs, please call (02) 6651 1788 for more details, or email contact@midcc.org.au.

Edited 2nd May with changed dates. Event times remain the same.
