What is iDrive?

iDrive aims to break the cycle of disadvantage experienced by low-income individuals who don’t have access to a vehicle or supervisory driver to get the experience required to graduate to their probationary licence. iDrive is helping provide pathways for those living with persistent disadvantage to gain confidence, self-esteem, employment, training, and enhanced social outcomes.

Become an iDrive Host Organisation 

We’d like to see our cars out and about in various locations and helping as many learners as possible.

We are currently working with the Australian Refugee Association and the Community Connections Program, helping Learner Drivers in the northern and southern suburbs achieve their 75 hours of driving experience.

This includes:

  • Agency sponsorship of learner drivers
  • Targeted recruitment of volunteers
  • Tailored training for volunteer mentors
  • Tailored induction for learner drivers
  • Hosting the iDrive vehicle on site for easier access
  • Mentor-learner matching and support
  • A collaborative approach to wrap-around support for learner drivers

Talk to us about how iDrive could be tailored to suit the needs of your program participants.

Become a Volunteer iDrive Mentor

Looking for an impactful volunteer role in your community? Become a Volunteer iDrive Mentor and help learner drivers get the 75 hours they need to get their licence, connect them to their community and see them drive right into employment and education. Choose the weekly hours you would like to volunteer and we will train you to drive with learners, in active listening, mentoring, and community connections.
