Geared2Drive helps young people aged 16-25 years become licenced drivers. Current legislation requires that Learners undertake 75 hours of supervised driving with a licenced adult before they can test for their Provisional licence. But not all young people have access to an adult with whom they can fulfil the 75 hour supervised driving obligation and this can be a significant barrier to young people gaining their driver’s licence.
Geared2Drive provides cars and volunteer supervising drivers to overcome this barrier and provide more young people with the opportunity to eventually become fully licenced drivers.
We are no longer accepting referrals for this program. The Geared2Drive program will come to an end on June 30, 2019. We will continue working with our existing participants until this date, to help them complete as many hours as possible. Please contact us if you have any questions.
We are currently in discussion with the City of Onkaparinga to investigate the sustainability of a Learner Driver Mentor Program in the Onkaparinga area independently from Geared2Drive post June 30, 2019.
