Road safety presentations

Council offers a wide range of road safety presentations to groups that are free of charge.

Want to help a group of people with their road skills?

Council can come to your premises with our equipment or we can organise a free presentation in one of Council’s premises.

Also, the presentation can be tailored to your group's needs and time frame. Please contact rso@cumberland.nsw.gov.au to discuss your details.

The presentation can be delivered in one of our community languages but the group will need to organise an interpreter.

Regular presentations include:

'Helping Learner Drivers to Become Safer Drivers'

Roads and Maritime Services is encouraging parents and supervisors to attend a free workshop on how to provide effective and safe practice sessions for learner drivers about licence conditions for learner and P plate drivers, tips for completing the paper and digital learner driver log books as well as explain the importance of providing constructive feedback. Find out more about the Helping Learner Drivers to Become Safer Drivers here.

The shortest presentation lasts 60 minutes, however to cover each topic mentioned it can take up to 2 hours.

Motorcycle Riders

A 2 hour presentation for riders delivered by riders focuses on the issues that most riders seem to be interested in, such as cornering, braking, posture and position, decision making, and reducing personal risks. This presentation is usually organised at local motorcycle dealers but it can be arranged for small groups at a location that suits you.

Council can arrange a road safety presentation for seniors at a venue of your request. We can tailor the presentation to cover the needs of the audience, however it will generally include Pedestrian Safety or Senior Driver Safety. The presentation will last a minimum of 30 minutes.
