Parents and learner drivers

Parents can continue to supervise their learner driver family members.

However, as we have always said, the safety and security of Tasmanians is our number one priority when it comes to protecting Tasmania from the spread of coronavirus.

Learner driving is considered a learning activity. If you are supervising a learner driver, you must adhere to the rules, only drive within your municipality, and only stop if you are getting essential supplies. If you do not have an essential reason to stop anywhere, you should not exit the vehicle while out and about.

Our message is clear, no one should be visiting outside their region or be away from their home without an essential reason.

We all need to be sensible and help reduce the threat posed by COVID-19.
