Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith, today announced 4301 motorists in the Penrith electorate have been rewarded with half price drivers’ licences as part of the ‘Fair Go for Safe Drivers’ incentive scheme.
“More women than men are being rewarded for their safe driving. The figures show 2393 women in Penrith have received the discounted licence while 1908 men have done so,” said Stuart Ayres.
“In July 2012 the NSW Government launched the ‘Fair Go for Safe Drivers’ scheme which rewards safe motorists and encourages others to obey the law on our roads.
“We all know that slowing down on the roads could save your life – it can also save you money.
“The scheme rewards motorists with an unblemished driving record for five years with a 50 per cent reduction on the price of their drivers’ licence renewal.
“The ‘Fair Go for Safe Drivers’ scheme provides a discount of up to $81 on a licence renewal.
“It’s our way of saying thank-you to motorists who do the right thing and encouraging better driving behaviour in others.
“The 50 per cent discount applies whether the licence is renewed for one, three or five years. Pensioners are unaffected as they pay nothing for their licence,” added Stuart Ayres.
