Keys4Life Parents

Parents often take on the role of teaching their children to drive which can be a positive and sometimes challenging experience. 

The Keys4Life program assists parents to find out more about the Western Australian Licensing System and road safety.

Parents and teenagers are invited to attend a free Keys4Life Parent Information Session about licensing and learning to drive.

Teachers can use this flyer to promote the session.

RAC supports the delivery of the Keys4life Parent Information Sessions.

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.

Parents who attend a Keys4Life Parent information session will be given a Let's Practise booklet.

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

Parents are encouraged to support their child in completing the tasks within the journal.

Before agreeing to supervise your teenage learner driver there are a few things you need to consider. These considerations are outlined in this Family information sheet.

 Drive Safe Handbook Learner's Permit Theory Test How to use a Keys4Life certificate  

This handbook is a comprehensive guide to the road rules that apply in Western Australia and has been written primarily to help new drivers prepare for a lifetime of safe driving.

If your child successfully completes the Keys4Life program they will have the opportunity to sit the Learner’s Permit Theory Test at school. If they pass the test with 24/30 or above, they can provide their Keys4Life certificate to the WA Department of Transport and will be exempt from paying the theory test portion of the fee. 

This Family information sheet explains how to use the Keys4Life certificate to gain an exemption in the Department of Transport’s Learner’s Permit application process.
