A licence opens much more than just the doors to a car; it also opens new opportunities for employment, education and makes community support services more accessible. This is particularly the case for Indigenous communities, who face additional barriers in gaining a driver licence.
The NRMA is proud to be partnering with Australian Red Cross to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to get their licence and open pathways to work. Participants access NRMA driver training and volunteer driving mentors to accrue the hours, experience and knowledge needed to get their licence.
For new driver, Kamilaroi woman Paula, the individual support and guidance gave her the confidence to sit her licence tests. Watch her story above.
