In 2012, 139 drivers aged 17-25 years were killed in road crashes. People in this age group account for 23 per cent of drivers killed on Australia's roads yet represent only 17 per cent of the adult population.
Keys2drive is a learner driver program run by the Australian Automobile Association (AAA) and funded by the Australian Government. It aims to encourage learner drivers to get more, and better quality, on-the-road experience, and to assist their supervising drivers (mainly parents) to become better informed and more confident. The program provides one free driving lesson with an accredited instructor, to learner drivers accompanied by their supervising drivers. It also supports learners and supervisors with educational material and practical guidance.
