Driver Mentoring Program
MRC North conducts a Driver Mentoring Program to assist migrants and refugees through the process of securing their driver’s licence, accessing supervised driving mentors and carpooling to work.
Drive 4 Life (D4L) Program
A driver’s licence is a passport for migrants and refugees to gain independence.
Many people newly arrived in the country do not have licensed family members to supervise their compulsory 50 hours pre-licence driving or a vehicle to undertake the required supervised driving. For these reasons, the D4L program is a great asset within the community. The Drive 4 Life Program is funded by the Department of State Growth.
The D4L Program has over 40 dedicated volunteers providing driving tuition in one of two dual-controlled vehicles owned by the Migrant Resource Centre North. The D4L participants are migrants and refugees who are on low incomes and unable to purchase professional driving services, may not have any relatives or friends able to supervise their learning and/or do not own a vehicle.
