Learner Driver First Aid – FREE Course


St John Ambulance provides free online training designed to equip learner drivers and bystanders with basic first aid knowledge and the confidence to assist in the case that they are the first on scene at a road accident. This course is non-accredited.

  • Every year on our roads around 1,200 Australians are killed and 44,000 are seriously injured.
  • Evidence shows that bystander First Aid reduces pre-hospital deaths and severe injury in the critical time it takes emergency services to arrive at the scene.
  • It is in the immediate aftermath of a traffic accident—the first 3 to 5 minutes—when giving life-preserving actions really matter. For example, it takes 4 minutes for a person to die from a blocked airway (hypoxia) — the single cause of an estimated 85% of pre-hospital traffic deaths
  • Even in the shortest ambulance response time (9–14 minutes in Australia), without immediate First Aid intervention, a person with a blocked airway will not survive. The simple act of lifting the unconscious person’s chin to unblock their airway, could save their life or lessen the impact of injury.
  • Knowing how to control severe bleeding is another immediate life-saving intervention — the loss of blood causes an estimated 30% of motor vehicle accident pre-hospital deaths.
