From October 2017 the Department of Transport announced changes to the Western Australian Driver's Licence Application Process.  Improved processes to obtain a provisional licence will better prepare applicants and result in safer novice drivers.  Download the updated Keys for Life facilitator manual pages below resulting from these new changes.  An updated complete resource will be available in 2019.

Student materials

If you are teaching the Keys for Life program at your school, you must attend a Keys for Life professional learning workshop. After the workshop, you can order student materials. Ordering instructions are in your Keys for Life Resource. You can also download the materials.

Behind the Wheel journal cover image

Behind the Wheel

Behind the Wheel is a compulsory journal for Keys for Life students to complete at home, before sitting the Learner's Permit Test at school.  Students can print a copy OR use the writable PDF (not on a hand held device).

Drive Safe Handbook Cover Image

Drive Safe

The Drive Safe Handbook is a comprehensive guide to the road rules that apply in Western Australia. It is written in an easy to understand format and designed primarily to help new drivers prepare for a lifetime of safe driving.

Your Secure Identity

An important part of applying for a Learner's Permit is being able to find and submit five valid forms of identity. For some young people and their families this can be complex and daunting. The Department of Transport has a Your Secure Identity fact sheet which explains exactly which forms of identification are required, and one of these is the Keys4Life certificate. The Department of Transport provides a free copy of the fact sheet to all students in the Keys4Life program or you can download the fact sheet.

Let's Practise

Students who attend a Keys for Life Parent Workshop will be given a Let's Practise booklet. This resource includes information about the Graduated Driver Training and Licensing (GDT&L) system in WA, the learning to drive process, and other handy tips about being a safer driver. Hard copies are not available for teachers to order.
