Keys4Life Teachers

Keys4Life is a pre-driver program that empowers young people to make informed decisions about safer driving.

Only facilitators who have attended the Keys4Life professional learning workshop can deliver the Keys4Life program and administer the Learner’s Permit Theory Test as outlined in the program implementation.

All Keys4Life teachers must have a teaching/education degree (and current registration with the Teacher Registration Board of WA) OR a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment to deliver the program.

Behind the Wheel is a compulsory journal for Keys4Life students to complete at home before they sit the Learner’s Permit Theory Test.

Students who attend a Keys4Life 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 learn to drive process, and other handy tips about being a safer driver.
