Non-possession of a driver’s licence is a major contributor to Australian Indigenous incarceration rates. Key participants in a multi-faceted program addressing this problem describe and analyse rationales and strategies of the program. The program offers individual participants immediate benefits (a licence), with communities being offered enhanced skills, educative capacities, the ability to access resources, and social and economic sustainability.
