Many people face barriers and challenges when it comes to obtaining a driver’s licence. Not having a licence can be a major setback in a young person’s life, making it harder to find employment and holding them back from educational and social opportunities.

Weave’s Driving Change program aims to help people to overcome these barriers, achieve their licensing goals and open up new opportunities in their lives.

Program Details

Getting your L’s: We can help you study for and take you to the Driver Knowledge Test. We can also help with the cost of the test.

Instructors: Driving Change has professional driving instructors who can provide professional lessons to Driving Change participants.

Cars: We have automatic and manual vehicles for our professional lessons.

If you do not have access to a roadworthy car to practice driving, you can borrow one of these cars, if you have someone who is willing to teach you to drive using our vehicle. If you choose to bring your own driver, they need to be over 25 and have a full NSW drivers licence and a be willing to obtain a Working with Children Check.
