Are you trying to get your Driver’s Licence to look for and secure employment, or access training or education for your chosen career path.

The North West Driver Mentor Program will assist young people, aged 16 to 24 and living on the North West coast, to complete their 80 hours driving time required to sit their provisional licence test. This is a FREE program.
