Aboriginal people and communities

The State government has established the Aboriginal Road Safety and Driving Licensing Program to address the disadvantage experienced by Aboriginal people in the driver licensing system and in road crashes. With Aboriginal driver licensing rates inversely proportional to those of non-Aboriginal people, the program provides Aboriginal people and communities with education, resources and practical  support to help them get a driver’s licence.

The program also aims to improve road safety outcomes for Aboriginal people, who are currently two to three times more likely to be involved in a transport related fatal crash and 30% more likely to be seriously injured from a road crash than non-Aboriginal Australians. The focus is on being safer drivers and safer passengers.
