Driving support

Sub-council 12 has approved a plan to spend R500 000 on helping the unemployed get their driver’s licences. Those who qualify will get up to 25 lessons, vehicle testing and other support to help them get their licences. The sub-council area comprises wards 35, 76, 82,92 and 116, and applications will be received at the ward offices on a first-come-first-served basis. Applicants must be unemployed, have a valid ID, reside in the sub-council area, have a valid learner’s licence and be committed to complete the training. Applications close on Friday January 20 at 4.30pm.
