Young drivers remain over-represented in serious road crashes. A reduction in the rates of serious crash involvement for 17–25 year old drivers over the past decade or more has been credited to the progressive implementation and enhancement of GLS in all states and territories.

States and territories will increase the implementation of best practice GLS consistent with the ‘enhanced’ and ‘exemplar’ models for driver licensing identified in the Australian Graduated Licensing Scheme Policy Framework, to reduce the number of novice drivers killed and seriously injured.

States and territories will implement best practice GLS for motorcyclists.
