Having a driver's licence has become an important part of job applications as employers want their employees to have one. A programme in KwaZulu-Natal was recently launched to help unemployed people in the province obtain their driver's licence. 


The KwaZulu-Natal Transport Department recently invited unemployed residents in the province to apply for a programme aimed at helping them obtain driver's licences and improve their employment prospects. As part of the provincial Transport Month campaign, Sipho Hlomuka, the MEC for Transport, Community Safety, and Liaison, has launched the Thuthuka Driving Skills Program. 

This initiative will provide free learners and driving licence classes ranging from Code 08 to Code 14 to over 3,000 individuals of all ages.

The programme is part of an ongoing effort to boost job opportunities, recognising that having a driver's licence enhances employability in various sectors. The department is collaborating with driving schools to implement this programme.
