Young SA Drivers banned from high-powered cars


SA Road Safety Minister, Jack Snelling, says high-powered cars are often involved in fatal crashes.

“Too many young people are killing themselves on the roads and that often happens when an inexperienced driver is driving a car that they just don’t have the necessary experience to control, particularly in dangerous circumstances,” he said.

Mr Snelling says it will be possible to seek an exemption from the law.

“If you already own one of these cars and don’t have another car available, or one of these cars happens to be the family car and no other car is available or if you need to drive one of these cars for work, you’re able to make an application to the Registrar of Motor Vehicles for an exemption in those sort of special circumstances,” he said.
