Driving Ambitions, launched in February 2010, is one of QASA’s flagship projects. Now, seven years later, it has built up an impressive momentum and has seen many successful candidates leaving with their driving licence in hand – their ticket to freedom and independence.

Alfred joined the Driving Ambitions programme mid-year with his mind set on obtaining his licence, which – with the help of driving instructor Des – he did. A thrilled Alfred says that it has given him the key to freedom, and he encourages all wheelchair users to make use of this service offered by QASA. Wheelchair users not only gain motoring independence but benefit from the self-confidence boost that it brings.

Driving Ambitions offers the services of a driving instructor and an adapted/hand control vehicle for people with mobility impairments. Should you require more information about the Driving Ambitions programme please send QASA an email at projectcoordinator@qasa.co.za, or visit the Driving Ambitions website at www.drivingambitions.co.za.
