JEREMY Faatele is the first recipient to complete the Drive to the Future program, which gives young people an opportunity to obtain a motor vehicle licence.

The program is delivered at Rockingham PCYC and funded by the WA Police Force Community Crime Prevention Fund grant.

Participants are selected from the centre’s learning and development programs based on attendance, behaviour, performance and other criteria.

All costs associated with securing a driver’s licence, including 50 hours of professional driving tuition from Eclipse Driving School, are covered by Rockingham PCYC funding.

Eight young people selected from Rockingham PCYC courses will have an opportunity to obtain a licence through the program. The program aims to remove the economic barrier of obtaining a driver’s licence and help participants pursue a career or education.
