Aboriginal Driver Education Program

Licensed and on the Road is an award winning program dedicated to helping Aboriginal people get a driving licence. If you do not yet hold a current learner’s licence or you need assistance to build up your hours – this is for you. There are just 3 steps.

1. Getting your L’s
2. Getting your hours up
3. Going for your Licence.

  • Getting your L Plates
    – You receive driver education in literacy, language and numeracy to assist with the Driver Knowledge Test.
    – Access to computers and staff at the College so you can practice the RMS Learner Driver Knowledge Test.
    – Free RMS ‘Listen and Learn Driver Knowledge Test Book’ (audio version).

All students must obtain their L Plates before they can access one of our driving instructors.

  • Getting your hours up
    – A choice of two dual control driver training vehicles, one manual and one automatic.
    – Rostered weekly one hour lessons with fully qualified driving instructors.
    – Over 25’s are not required to complete logbook.
  • Going for your Licence
    – One hour lesson with our instructor prior to the Driving Ability Road Test.
    – Access to an ACE vehicle for licensing* which includes a one hour lesson prior to the test. *Only available to students who have attended a minimum of 3 lessons.

Our driving team:
JAN LEVY – PROGRAM CO-ORDINATOR
Jan is your first point of contact and will book and manage all your lessons. She will issue you with a lesson plan and remind you of each lesson.
This program is very popular, so to be fair to all students we operate a strict ‘3 strikes and you’re out’ policy for students who don’t call to cancel appointments that cannot be kept. If we are not notified in advance students will need to reapply to be part of the program.

CHEYANNE FAULKNER – ADMINISTRATION ASSISTANT
Cheyanne provides administration support for the program and works from the Lismore ACE College location on  Tuesday and Friday.

DRIVING INSTRUCTORS
Local to your community. As the program has a wide reach we use local driving instructors who arrange your lessons to suit you.
