Best Practice in RSE

This document provides an insight into the principles of Best Practice for youth road safety education and illustrates how RSE’s programs are bench marked against them.

Ticking all the road safety education boxesBest Practice

When selecting a road safety education program, it’s crucial that it performs when bench marked against evidence-based research, providing best outcomes for students. You can now choose a road safety program by reference to best practice guidelines published by Australian and New Zealand governments. View Resource »







At the RYDA Program we teach students the value of selecting a motor vehicle that has the highest possible Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) star rating.  This indicates the level of safety they provide in the event of a road crash.  For greatest safety it is recommend that consumers should only buy ANCAP 5 star rated vehicles.

Choosing a road safety education program is a bit like selecting a safe car – you should only choose a program that performs best when bench-marked against what research
indicates will produce the best outcome for the students.  Most jurisdictions across Australia and New Zealand have published guidelines or principles on what constitutes best practice for youth road safety education. RSE has used these best practice guidelines to help produce a highly respected and effective, award winning Program.

The best practice principles can be distilled into five broad themes:
• program content,
• program delivery,
• consistent sequential learning,
• broad community engagement and
• evaluation

RSE continues to make a substantial investment in the RYDA Program to ensure that students receive a program that consistently meets best practice road safety education standards.
