Sometimes, getting your driver’s licence can be a huge challenge. Learner drivers are required to complete a certain number of supervised driving hours before they are eligible to undertake their practical driving exam and hopefully become a licensed driver.
For some young people, the steps it takes to complete these requirements are difficult and frequently impossible to achieve, preventing those in challenging or vulnerable positions from obtaining their driver’s licence altogether.
Not having a driver’s licence can present many obstacles, such as reducing a person’s access to employment opportunities, the community, other support services and simply limiting their overall independence which negatively impacts one’s mental health.
