We continue to be here to support care leavers and there will always be someone you can contact to offer advice, help and support on 03000 262 271. 

Learning to drive for care leavers

Learning to drive is a great way of becoming independent. We can give you support to help you do this including money towards your driving lessons and tests.

Through the Drive Project you can get up to £500 towards your driving lessons, theory and practical tests. CBT motorcycle training is also included in the scheme.

It's limited to 15 people per year, but if it's full you can be added to the waiting list.

To access the project, you must be 17 to 21 years old (or 25 if you are still in full-time education) and it must be part of your pathway plan.
