Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Drivers Licensing Project



A Queensland Transport and whole-of-Government initiative aiming to deliver driver licensing services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Queensland (Qld). The program commenced as a project in early 2003, and intended to encompass three sub projects, namely: problem identification; intervention development; and implementation and evaluation.
The Centre of Accident Research and Road Safety - Qld (CARRS-Q) undertook the first phase. Task groups were created in the second phase and implementation and evaluation took place during the third phase. The final phase in 2006 involved the transition from project to program, which will be ongoing until the licensing rate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is the same as the rest of the total Qld population .
