Following the successful program held last week, Deaf Children Australia is partnering up again with CRUDE Ultimate Driving Education and hosting Ready Set Drive again next year! Take part in this unique driver training program for deaf and hard of hearing people that support you in getting your Ls and more. The date will be released shortly, but you can register your interest now!
Ready Set Drive is an interactive workshop for deaf and hard of hearing people at the start of their driving journey. No experience is required, we've got you!
Having a license greatly improves independence for all young people and promotes more social, recreational, educational and employment opportunities.
This is why we have created:
Ready: Road rules, road safety and awareness
Set: Vehicle dynamics, basic car maintenance and tyre changing
Drive: Driver simulation and practice learner test
This first component will be classroom based, and will aim at getting you on your Ls plates and on the road (with training wheels)!
In this one-day workshop, you'll learn about:
- road rules
- road safety
- awareness on our roads
- how to open up the hood of a vehicle to go through basic maintenance
- how to change a tyre
- vehicle dynamics
- utilising a simulator to experience the dangers of vehicles in a safe environment
- practice Learner test to get you ready for the big day!
The qualified instructors from CRUDE Ultimate Driving Education will conduct the workshop. Auslan interpreters will be present throughout the workshop.
Places are limited so register your interest for Ready Set Drive now!
Who can attend?
Any deaf or hard of hearing person 16 years and up. No experience is required. People already have their Learner's permit but would like a refresher are also welcome!

We have many participants who are self or plan-managed under NDIS who use their funds to cover the cost of DCA events and activities. Please note we do not provide specific line numbers and it is up to you to check with your NDIS provider if you can use your plan to pay for this event. Most participants will use core funding as it is most flexible.
