Helping to overcome the barriers
The Wheels in Motion program is designed to assist disadvantaged and at risk youth between the ages of 16 and 25, to overcome a major barrier to employment and further education, by assisting them to attain the hours required for a Provisional licence.
This program targets young people:
Who live/work/study in the Gawler and Light area
without an accessible, appropriate vehicle in the household where they live
or without access to a licensed supervising driver
those who can demonstrate that being P licensed would immediately improve their employment or education opportunities will receive some priority.
The Wheels in Motion program has three key components:
a Road Safety Forum that every young person who would like access to mentored support must attend, where there will be;
a discussion where the young persons’ situation is explored to determine if a place can be offered. Plans can then be made for that person to complete the required 4 hours of lessons with a licensed driving instructor – if they haven’t done so already (requirement prior to starting) *depending on level of experience
mentoring in-car driving experience (1-2 hour sessions) from Gawler’s base; Café Nova
