The Road Ready Plus or P...off course has been designed to support new drivers through a critical period in their driving.
The course is optional and is only available to you after you have held a provisional licence for at least 6 months. The course involves small groups of new drivers meeting together and participating in a facilitated discussion workshop around the experiences of driving. You also need to do two small tasks before commencing the course. In total it takes about 5 hours.
Talking through things that come up in your early months of driving can be helpful - not only to yourself but to others. After successfully completing the Road Ready Plus course you will no longer have to display your P plates. Your demerit points allowance will increase from four to eight points - not so that you can go out and drive harder and faster - but because you deserve a reward for wanting to learn beyond your Ps!
The Road Ready (P..off) course costs $88.00 (including GST) and is only available through Road Ready Centres.
