What is the Driver Licensing Access Program?

Bamara delivers the Driver Licensing Access Program (DLAP) across Dubbo and Moree, a free program funded by Transport for NSW, developed for people who face extra challenges getting a driver licence.

It makes getting your driver licence accessible for community groups with difficulty due to employment, education, family, training, or lack of support.

We will teach you how to be a safe, skilled and legal driver and take pride in knowing we’ll be there for you every step of your driving journey.

Who is DLAP for?

This program is available to groups of people who may not have access to the necessary resources to obtain a driver licence, including:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
  • Refugee and resettlement communities.
  • Rural communities who have limited access to transport options or who are geographically disadvantaged.
  • Vulnerable young people.
  • People experiencing social and economic hardship.

Get in touch with us to chat about your situation and discuss what’s best for you.

Is there an age restriction?

No – every one of the driving age is encouraged to register for DLAP. You’re not too old to learn to drive!

Where is DLAP available?

We deliver services in communities across:

  • Dubbo
  • Moree

How does it work?

We teach you all the driving basics to get your driver licence. If you previously had a licence but lost it, we can help you regain it and resolve any debt.

Our DLAP team will help with:

  • Developing your literacy, numeracy and computer skills and licensing enrolment support.
  • Preparation to ensure you’re confident and ready for your Driver Knowledge Test with sessions with a Mentor, either in a group or one on one.
  • Reaching your learner driver hour targets.
  • Access to a Driver Mentor who will teach you how to drive and supervise you on the road.
  • Coaching and support all the way through from your L plates to your P plates.
  • Financial support to cover the costs of gaining your licence.

Does it matter if I fail?

Nope! One of the great things about DLAP is that you can try as many times as you like – and you won’t have to pay every time.

No matter how long it takes, our team will be there to support you until you get your P Plates.
