QLD Youth Services

Townsville’s Queensland Youth Services provides a vital service to local people who require a little extra assistance to start their journey as a safe driver. The QYS learner licence program spans over three days and provides road safety and licensing education in a supported learning environment.

On 3 May, Yellow Ribbons were presented to participants in the Northern Region event to mark National Road Safety Week. 

The program is available to young people who would find TMR’s mainstream processes difficult due to personal circumstances (including cultural diversity or social disadvantage). 

TMR actively supports the program; members of our local Customer Service Centre visit QYS on the last day of the program to deliver the learner licence test in a location that is comfortable and familiar to participants. 

The department is a proud partner of this community initiative and congratulates QYS on the outstanding road safety outcomes achieved.
