Introduction

Make a commitment to be phone safe when driving.

About the course

Using your mobile phone while driving is illegal. And for good reason. In 2015, 22 people were killed and 99 seriously injured in accidents where a driver was using a phone.

This course covers the facts, and everything you need to know to be phone safe when driving.
