Driving Ambitions

The Driving Ambitions Grant is aimed at helping children/young adults get started as drivers.

The grant is only for young people with no experience of driving. If driving lessons have already started you may want to think of an alternative grant. Family Fund cannot help with ongoing driving lesson support.

Whilst we cannot help with ongoing driving lessons, the grant can help get your child/young adult started with a combination of:

  • Provisional licence
  • Theory test
  • Learning materials e.g. Highway Code or Theory Test booklet/DVD
  • Your first taster lesson
  • funding towards Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) for moped riders

To apply for the grant please specify “Driving Ambitions” on your application and we will then write out to you for more information. Download an application form at:
