Your licence is your life: Indigenous drink driving and licensing program (2011)

Resource package



This resource kit has been designed for people working with Aboriginal communities in regional areas of Western Australia (WA) and has been developed in consultation with stakeholders and Aboriginal people across the state.

The kit contains a range of interactive resources specifically developed for Aboriginal Western Australians including a board game, discussion cards, a streetscape mat with model cars, and a 'Q and A' CD containing practice learner's permit theory tests with the option for people with low literacy levels to listen along and a questionnaire to help people prepare for the application process.

Additional educational materials in the kit include a DVD starring Mary G that explores the issues surrounding unlicensed and drink driving, a poster that encourages alternatives to drinking, several booklets and a DVD of Road Safety Council TV campaigns created by Goolarri Media.

The Office of Road Safety in Western Australia has created a simple and easy to understand educational resource to make the process of getting a driver's licence easier, and to spread the word about drink driving.

Note: This kit is for use in WA only as it is based on WA's road rules and licensing process.
