Learner Drivers are required to complete 100 hours of supervised driving experience before they are eligible to undertake a practical test to obtain their P1 provisional driver licence.  For some people, this requirement is difficult to meet and may prevent them from obtaining their driver licence.  This can then have negative effects on a person’s ability to gain employment or access services.

After completing the QYS DriveIT Youth Mentoring Program, the participants would have gained their 100 hours completely guided by professional and experienced drivers.  The participants would have confidence in their knowledge of road safety as well as added guidance on what to do in any driving conditions. They would then be eligible to undertake the Practical Driving test.
