Girl who just got her license with friendDRIVE—Driver’s License, Insurance, Vehicles & Education

Sometimes being able to drive is the surest way to get ahead—to get a better job or a better education. Situations that can hold people back can be:

  • Not having a driver’s license
  • Being afraid to drive
  • The high cost of insurance
  • Not having a car

Our transportation coach can help you explore your options for driving and come up with a one-on- one plan to overcome your transportation barriers.

To be eligible for our DRIVE program you must:

  • Have a stated transportation barrier
  • Be committed to working with our transportation coach
  • Be committed to complete our car care class
  • Be the parent of a school-age child or children (Due to our funders preference, participants who are working to get a license or vehicle must be the parent of a school aged child or children)
