Protect your P-plater
Young drivers are one of the most at risk on our roads due to their inexperience. Young drivers represent around 14% of Queensland’s licence-holders. But they’re involved in around 25% of road deaths.
By being involved at both the Learner and P plate stage, as well as helping them choose the safest car for their budget, you can help your young driver stay safe.
Are you teaching a learner driver?
The online PrepL Supervisor Course offered by the Department of Transport and Main Roads includes guides and lesson plans which start with driving basics through to more complex driving situations. Road rule refreshers are also available as part of this course.

There is also a free guide for preparing to be a supervisor, planning a lesson, gaining experience and avoiding hazards, and moving onto P-plates available on the Queensland Government site. This is additional free content to the PrepL Supervisor course.

Driver Offence Notification
The Driver Offence Notification service is a courtesy email that can help you monitor and influence the on-road behaviour of your child when you let them use your motorcycle, car or truck. You will receive a Driver Offence Notification when your child or someone else commits an offence and is issued a fine at the roadside in your vehicle.
Parents of children aged 16 and over
While children are becoming more independent at 16 years, there are several rules they need to follow, particularly in relation to:
- Personal Mobility Devices
- Seatbelts (as passengers)
- Breakdown safety
