Indigenous Learner Driver Program
A licence opens much more than just the doors to a car; it also opens new opportunities for education, training and employment and makes community support services more accessible. Research also shows that having the freedom to drive can reduce the risk of contact with the criminal justice system as well as reducing the risk of reoffending.
This program assists Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to overcome the social and economic barriers to obtaining a driver's licence. Participants are linked with NRMA driver training and community volunteers, who provide them with:
- assistance securing proof of identity;
- literacy support and practise for all computer-based tests;
- information and referral to relevant services where required;
- access to a vehicle, a driver mentor and financial support for test fees; and
- education and training
