Two years before he gets behind the wheel for the first time, 14-year-old Yousef Elhage is already acutely aware of the danger of mobile phones.
"Keep it away in the glove-box, because everyone knows how bad they can be," he said.
Yousef is now among year 9 Albury High School students who have completed a new learning tool created by the Australian Road Safety Foundation.
"It's great, it helps with your understanding and just clears up your memory of the right things and the wrong things to do," he said.
"Every now and again, Mum or Dad points out something on the road, saying 'Be aware of this'."
The program called RoadSet was launched at Albury High by ARSF founder Russell White.
"One of the statistics that I find quite alarming is that road trauma is the biggest killer of kids aged between one and 14," he said.
"So, when we were looking at how we address that issue, it came to light that we needed a more holistic approach.
"Through interactive learning, students follow the journey of Charlie, who's our lead character.
"We've had probably close to 35,000 kids actually sign up for the course - the feedback has been really great.
"We want every single school right around the country to do it."
Albury High PDHPE teacher Greg King said RoadSet would add to their resources.
"I've been teaching for over 30 years and I've been teaching road safety for that long," he said.
"We teach road safety across years seven to 10 and it's become a lot more integrated.
"This is an interactive program, it's flexible, and the fact it's self-paced is also beneficial."
Mr King said as road safety promotion generally had shifted away from scare tactics, so had school resources.
"It's now more strength-based in the way that we approach it," he said.
"So you will have seen the Towards Zero commercials for example, making people think about the ripple effect."
Farrer MP Sussan Ley said the federal government had funded the RoadSet program, launched last year.
