New England North West license training project

 

Overview

The New England North West license training project allows people who are trained and resourced to conduct classes for people with low literacy so they can pass the Road and Traffic Authority (RTA) driver knowledge test and gain a drivers licence. This project also helps participants to settle outstanding fines.

The project involved consultation with key community people, local police, TAFE, Aboriginal Land Councils, Community Development Employment Programs, Aboriginal employment services, job network providers and staff from government and non-government sectors. The towns of Boggabilla, Moree, Gunnedah, Tamworth, Tenterfield and Inverell with high Aboriginal populations were selected for the project.

The success of the project has resulted in many communities implementing it at a local level. The local courts have also seen the benefits of the project and now refer people from the courts to the program to gain a licence so they are not further disadvantaged.
