Driving lessons that change lives
driverED is a friendly, multilingual, professional driving school operating in the northern suburbs of Melbourne.
The only social enterprise driving school in Australia, our team of instructors provide high quality, low cost, culturally appropriate lessons to learner drivers experiencing barriers to obtaining their driving test due to language, income or a limited understanding of Australia’s road laws and regulations.
We partner with community-focused organisations and services that are working with migrant, refugee and humanitarian entrants who require driving lessons for employment, economic empowerment, and connection.
More than just a driving school, we support migrant and refugee people to start their own business as certified driving instructors, offering real income alongside tailored coaching and support.
