LEARNER and P-plate drivers from Lock, Wharminda, Sheringa and Elliston recently took part in a Young Drivers Training Day at Lock.

The Lock Health Centre Advisory Committee has continued to provide this opportunity to the young drivers of the Lock district in an ongoing attempt to kerb unnecessary road fatalities, debilitating accidents and vehicle damage.

Qualified driving instructors from the Australian Driving Institute(ADI), based in Adelaide, came over to provide both theoretical and practical driving tuition.

Participants were put through their paces braking at various speeds, maneuvering through obstacles and ABS braking.

Particular emphasis was also placed on safe distances between vehicles, fatigue and safe driving practices.

Thanks to funding from the Elliston District Council young drivers were able to participate for free. 

Lock Health Centre Advisory Committee chairman, Jamie Siviour, said it was a fantastic opportunity for young drivers to get this level of training.
