Welcome to Going Solo, a resource for parents of newly qualified drivers.
Newly qualified drivers are involved in more crashes than any other driving group. Car crashes are the leading cause of death for young people worldwide. Parents play a key role in guiding and promoting safe driving habits—even primary school children observe their parent’s driving behaviour!
This site provides strategies for parents to assist newly qualified drivers as they make the transition from learning to drive with a supervisor, to the solo driving phase. These strategies are based on the latest scientific research known to be effective in reducing crash risk.
