The Pacific Link Housing Learner Driver Program helps young tenants seeking a driver’s licence by providing information packs and paying for 10 professional driving lessons. Our partner in the program, the NRMA’s Safer Driving School, provides a further lesson so our learners have 11 lessons in all.
Introduced three years ago, the program aims to improve the knowledge and skills of learner drivers – recognising the importance of better driving skills for improved road safety and the value of a drivers licence as an aid to mobility and employment for young people.
The program is open to Pacific Link tenants who are in good standing; between 16 and 19 years of age; are applying for or hold a current Learners Licence and are Australian citizens or permanent residents. More than 30 learners have so far been assisted by this program.
