Drivin' 4 Employment

Helping you get on the road

If you're aged between 16 and 24 years, we understand that getting a driver's licence can sometimes be difficult. This in turn can become a barrier to getting a job.

Drivin' 4 Employment is a project that can help you get your learner driver's licence (Ls) and then your provisional licence (Ps).

About the project

The first stage of the project will teach you about driver safety, how to budget so you can save for your first car, and there's also a job seeker session to prepare you for getting a job.

In the second stage qualified instructors, volunteers and mentors will take you for driving lessons in the Drivin' 4 Employment vehicle.

We work with the Salvation Army's Oasis Youth Support Network to deliver this project, which aims to reduce the high unemployment levels of young people in the inner city.

Get involved

To take part in Drivin' 4 Employment you need to get a referral first – just ask Centrelink, your local youth organisation, or your job network agency.

You need to be unemployed and aged between 16 to 24 years.

Numbers are limited so you might have to go on a waiting list after you complete the registration form, which can be downloaded from the downloads section on this page.
