Staying ahead of the curve

Even if you’ve been driving for years, it doesn’t hurt to brush up on your skills and knowledge from time to time.

To help, RAA offers a range of different programs to organised groups, covering topics such as road rules, mobility choices and lifestyle.

Each hour-long session is free and given by a specially trained RAA presenter. For more information or to book a session, email us.

What are the different session types?

There are 5 different types of sessions available:

1. Road Safety

RAA believes all drivers should continue to drive for as long as they are safe to do so. Years Ahead: Road Safety is designed to give people valuable information to help them achieve this. The presentation covers:

  • road safety tips for drivers and pedestrians
  • road rules
  • the importance of choosing a safe vehicle
  • the importance of being fit to drive
  • the impact of health and medications on driving
  • how to assess your own driving ability; and
  • how to plan for future mobility.
2. Lifestyle

Years Ahead: Lifestyle is for drivers approaching or in their retirement years. It looks at topics such as:

  • car safety and maintenance
  • saving money on fuel
  • transporting grandchildren
  • taking a holiday and interstate motoring
  • security at home and while you’re away; and
  • staying healthy and mobile.
3. Mobility Matters

Years Ahead: Mobility Matters focuses on the transition away from driving, whether you’re thinking about reducing the amount of time you spend behind the wheel or stopping altogether. It looks at transport options, including motorised wheelchairs (commonly known as mobility scooters).  It covers:

  • the impacts of health on driving
  • driving alternatives
  • motorised wheelchairs including what to consider and how to choose the right one
  • legal responsibilities and;
  • road service
4. Road Rules Quiz

Years Ahead: Road Rules Quiz is an interactive presentation that covers both general road rules and give way rules. We have two different sessions to test your knowledge with well-established, misunderstood and new laws while, having a bit of fun. Each participant receives a ‘clicker’ at the presentation to record their answers; the group’s responses are then displayed in real-time on the screen. The presentation covers:

  • often misunderstood road rules
  • new road rules; and
  • what to do after a crash.
5. Then and Now

Years Ahead: Then and Now gives an insight into RAA’s history, which spans more than 115 years. It can either be delivered at your venue or at RAA, coupled with a tour of our headquarters. The presentation will look at RAA milestones, and the tour showcases some of our memorabilia. The presentation covers: 

  • RAA through the decades and today
  • how our state’s roads have changed; and
  • a tour of our head office at Mile End (for sessions held at RAA).
