The Road Safety Education, Driver Education and Training Policy provides the framework for the planning and teaching of road safety in NSW public schools.
What do we do?
Our dedicated team provides professional learning about road safety education to teachers in NSW public schools.

- offer workshops for primary and secondary teachers about best practice road safety education
- work with small groups of schools on road safety education projects and initiatives
- provide advice to principals and schools about implementation of the department's Road Safety Education, Driver Education and Training Policy
- support principals to help solve road safety issues in and around schools.
To empower children and young people in NSW public schools to be safe road users.
We aim to achieve this by encouraging schools to use a whole-school approach to road safety education.
This will be done by providing support to:
- improve quality teaching of the curriculum
- create and maintain a supportive culture, environment and policy
- engage and liaise with parents, carers and the school community.
A whole-school approach to road safety education is where schools, parents, carers and communities work together to create a supportive environment for students to learn, understand and practise road safety.
