For over 20 years, Driver Reviver has been a national program with one objective: to reduce road collisions by alleviating driver fatigue.

Victoria State Emergency Service volunteers and Lions Club members operate sites around Victoria on holiday weekends and peak traffic days offering motorists a safe place to stop and refresh.

Official launch

VICSES is launching its Easter Driver Reviver program on Wednesday 1 April from 8am to 12.30pm at Swanston Street Forecourt, Federation Square. Official proceedings will begin at 9.30am.

Come down and discover the locations of Driver Reviver sites across Victoria this Easter, talk to SES volunteers and show your support for this important safety initiative. Enjoy a bacon and egg sandwich and free tea and coffee while chatting to VICSES volunteer about the Driver Reviver program.
