You can’t learn to drive early enough, according to the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS). They’re running a pilot program for kids as young as 12 in Adelaide that they hope the Government will pick up and run across all secondary schools.
It’s an absolutely fantastic idea. Not only will it prevent kids from picking up bad habits from parents or older siblings who drive them around, it’ll also prevent anyone chickening out of driving and waiting too long to get a licence.
As a child of the era of the first really graphic road safety television ads, I waited till my mid 20s to start learning to drive because I always felt too anxious to take the responsibility of getting behind the wheel.
