RACQ Driver IQ program
The RACQ Driver IQ Program is a one hour road safety awareness program that is offered free of charge to Year 10, 11 and 12 students in Queensland. The program is both interactive and engaging and utilises a resilience-based approach to empower novice drivers to survive and thrive throughout their driving journey. Key aspects of each stage of this journey are explored including the required 100 Learner hours, being a passenger and effectively dealing with them as a driver and handling breakdowns and accidents. Students are equipped with tangible, real-world strategies to enable them to maximise the Learner phase in preparation for progression to the Provisional driving phase and thriving beyond this. The two available programs are:
- The Provisional (P) Program: for Year 11 Semester 2 students and Year 12 Semesters 1 and 2
- The Learner (L) Program: for Year 10 Semester 2 students and Year 11 Semester 1 students
