Free driving lessons for young people

Our flagship scheme 'Driving Ahead' is a package of 46 hours of free driving lessons, plus theory test and practical driving test fees, for young people aged 17-25 leaving the care of the London borough of Barnet.


Being able to drive can be a game changer for a vulnerable young person, boosting their self-esteem, employment options and reducing social isolation. It also instils a sense of self-worth. We now also offer support for young people who need help with passing their theory test.

Thanks to Driving Ahead, 20 young people have now got their driving licences and gained life-changing opportunities.
