The program involves this website with interactive learning activities, a learning resource to support classroom activities in Planning 10 and a guide to support complementary activities in the community.

The Good to Go? mobile app

Drugs and Driving also includes the mobile app Good to Go?, which is available for iOS devices. Good to Go? enables young drivers to learn about the effects of various impairments on their driving in an entertaining and engaging way. The Good to Go? quiz estimates the effects of a userís substance intake and emotional state on their driving ability, then demonstrates those effects through short descriptions and animations.
