The Community Road Safety program is funded by VicRoads and delivered by Whittlesea Community Connections in collaboration with Melbourne Polytechnic. The program supports newly arrived who do not have a Victorian driver’s licence or learner’s permit. The program aims to provide information on Victorian road rules, highlight key road safety concerns, as well as rights and responsibilities under the Australian licencing system. Delivering this course increases participants’ awareness of road rules, road safety and promotes safer driving in the community. The provision of purchased and supervised lessons also helps learners acquire their probationary licence.
- Newly arrived, living, studying or working within the City of Whittlesea
- Aged over 21 years and do not have a Victorian licence

A four days intensive learner permit course will increase participant’s awareness of road rules, road safety and Australian licensing systems, and fully prepare participants for their learner permit test. The provision of purchased and supervised lessons will help learners acquire their probationary licence.
Participants are provided a ‘road to solo’ handbook and the course is delivered with culturally and linguistically appropriate materials through 4 hours of in-class time.
VicRoads Bundoora supports participants who are interested in acquiring their learner permit with booking and taking their test in collaboration with Whittlesea Community Connections.
