Learning to drive can be a challenge at any time, but particularly without access to an instructor or a car.
We support various programs to help people overcome barriers that may be preventing them from learning to drive, recognising that having a licence can improve employment and social opportunities.
In Queensland we have partnerships with:
- the Artie Academy Transurban #1 Driving School - assisting Indigenous students gain the 100 hours of driving practice needed to obtain their drivers’ licence
- the Transurban Women at the Wheel program - supporting refugee and migrant women to access driver education and lessons, and
- Open Haven’s Drive to Thrive program - empowering survivors of domestic violence to gain the freedom and independence that comes with a drivers’ licence.
