Welcome to our Parents Information page
We like to share what we cover in our school workshop program with parents so that together, we can help teenagers on their journey to becoming safer drivers, informed and empowered road users and can help reach the nation’s goal of a zero-road toll.
Galmatic has taught over 50,000 students since 2007, equipping them with basic car skills in a fun and non-threatening environment.
What the students cover
No hard jargon or boring power points with black and white diagrams.
We dive in and get them under the bonnet checking the oil and then on the ground changing a tyre in an intensive, interactive hands-on workshop.
We focus on teaching students to be comfortable with exploring and questioning.
We remove the fear of “Can I touch that?” and create a safe and fun environment where no question is too silly to ask.
The workshop is designed around what we call ‘The 10-minute servo check’. Which is a monthly car check to ensure their car is running at its best, doesn’t break down and keeps them driving safely.
Under the Bonnet
- What, when and how to check the engine to keep it running smoothly and safely
- What they can and can’t touch in the engine bay
- Students check the oil and coolant, fluids, battery and hoses
- How to care for tyres & check the pressure
- Students change a tyre
The playbook is a recap of the workshop.
It includes a step by step guide on how to change a tyre and the ‘The 10-minute servo check’ how-to checklist.
Students are provided with a link to download the workshop playbook onto their phones.
You can download the Glovebox Guide for your phone too – shhh we won’t tell anyone if you haven’t changed a tyre before!
