DriveSafe NT - Safe Driver Program

The DriveSafe NT Safe Driver Program is a Northern Territory Government Driver Education and Licensing Program for people over 16 years of age and provides the participant with the opportunity to gain essential knowledge of Northern Territory road rules, safe driving practices and competency based driver education and licencing through training sessions and subsidised driving lessons with a qualified driving instructor.

The DriveSafe Team enjoy travelling across the NT, meeting people and providing essential information and training on how to drive safely on our roads.

Drivesafe NT Program Manager Alexia Hohipa-Wilson said that the team travels all over the Northern Territory to teach safe driving practices, getting there by road or even light aircraft.

“We take our team out to very remote areas including Wurrumiyanga, Kalkarindji, Lajamanu, Elcho Island, Nyirripi, Yuendumu, Yuelamu and more. We find it incredibly rewarding being able to make a difference in these communities – they see us coming in our bright red shirts and know exactly what we do and are excited to learn about road safety.”

We are very proud to support local businesses in urban areas who are contracted to deliver the program to people living in urban or regional areas.

Students in the DriveSafe NT program receive education and training by qualified driving instructors and assessors as well as subsidies towards obtaining a drivers licence, including:

• A DriveSafe NT participant pack inclusive of all course materials,
• Access to theory classes and road safety education lessons,
• Learner (L) and Provisional (P) licence and test fees,
• Subsidised driving lessons or access to trained supervising drivers,
• Two attempts at the practical driving assessment; and
• First @ Scene St John Ambulance NT online course.
