Driver support program



The Driver support program aims to provide support and assistance to Indigenous people from the East Kimberley seeking to gain their driver's license or undergo driver training. By providing this support, the program hopes to increase and expand participants' employment prospects. The specific objectives of the program are to:
  • work with agencies to identify those struggling to access a driver's licence
  • provide practical assistance to those seeking a license to obtain identification documents
  • to provide access to reliable vehicles and willing supervisors to assist those working to achieve the supervised driving hours required to gain a provisional license
  • assist community members with outstanding fines to access financial assistance programs
  • provide defensive driver theory┬átraining
  • make referrals to the East Kimberley Community Development Employment Program (CDEP).

The Driver support program was developed by the Indigenous Employment Coordination Group as a part of the East Kimberley Development Package.
