The program is dedicated to helping Aboriginal people get a driving licence.

Since it started in 2005 the program has assisted young people, some Elders and community members of all ages from across Lismore and the broader region to gain their licence and enhance their employability outcomes.

Students are supported by the program coordinator, receive access to PCs to practice fro the RMS Learner Driver Knowledge Test, attend several hours of individual driving instruction and have access to an ACE vehicle to complete the Driving Ability Road Test.
