The State Government announced this week that it will introduce a new course for learner drivers.
The course, which is still to be developed, will be aimed at giving learner drivers skills to become safer drivers.
A board of independent road safety experts and advisory panel will be appointed to make recommendations on the structure of the course.
Learner drivers who complete a safer driving course will have their log book requirements reduced from the current 120 hours to 100 hours.
Learner drivers will be able to combine the safer driving course with the three for one driving lessons concession to reduce their log book requirement to 80 hours.
