Keys2drive discontinuation

Australian Country Road at Sunset

The national Keys2drive program will conclude on 30 June 2023.

The Keys2drive program has operated since 2008 and the AAA has greatly appreciated the Commonwealth Government’s significant funding support over the past 14 years.

The Keys2drive program has delivered thousands of subsidised driving lessons but unfortunately, multiple independent appraisals now show that it may not have delivered the measurable road safety improvements that we had all hoped for.

The program was never funded beyond June, and rather than seek new funding, the AAA looks forward to working with the Commonwealth to help design, develop, and fund new programs that can deliver measurable road safety improvements, and which can help meet Australia’s ambitious road trauma reduction goals.

The AAA is deeply committed to helping reduce Australia’s worsening road toll and supports the Australian Government’s stated goal of halving national road deaths by 50 per cent through the decade to 2030.
