Learn to drive. Free.
We'll help get you on the road to a great career.
It’s simple – tradies need transport. And without a driver’s license, travelling from site to site or carrying that ute-load of tools can be challenging.
CITB is changing that. Our Career Driven initiative provides first-year apprentices who don’t yet hold a driver’s license with free driving lessons.
Eligible students can access up to:
- - 10 x 60-minute Vehicle On Road Test (VORT) lessons
- 90-minute competency-based training and assessment (CBT&A) lessons
Not only will it give younger apprentices a key skill, it will also make them more attractive to employers in the building and construction industry.
Am I eligible?
In order to be eligible, you must be aged 16 years or older and-
- currently enrolled as a doorways2construction student with a letter of offer for employment as an apprentice/trainee or;
- have completed the doorways2construction program and have a letter of offer for employment as an apprentice/trainee or;
How can I apply?
Completing the application is easy. Simply upload a copy of your letter of offer for employment. (we can’t process your application without it!)
How do I go about booking lessons?
It’s pretty easy. As an eligible apprentice, all you have to do is locate an available instructor near you and forward us their details (name and contact info are a good start). That’s about it. CITB will then contact your instructor to arrange invoicing and payment, while you just relax.
Do they need to be an RAA instructor? No, they simply need to be an accredited instructor.
What is a letter of offer for employment?
