Newly Arrived Hyderabadi Student Assistance Program


The purpose of this program is to assist newly arrived Hyderabadi students to achieve Australian driving licenses at their earliest          possible  convenience by paying partial cost of the driving instruction classes.

We will achieve this by sharing the burden by paying partial cost of driving instruction classes thus reducing the cost of taking driving instruction classes to the newly arrived Hyderabadi students. This will enable them to try to acquire an Australian driving license at their earliest convenience by reducing the direct cost that a newly arrived Hyderabadi student will incur.


The sole objective of this program is to assist a newly arrived Hyderabadi student to achieve his/her Australian driving license at their earliest possible convenience by reducing the direct cost that a newly arrived student will incur.

By assisting in achieving an Australian driving license which will open various avenues to find work and sustain a newly arrived student’s stay in Australia we believe is one of the best ways to contribute and give back to the community.


This program at this point in time is available only for newly arrived Hyderabadi students in Melbourne and those who live in the western suburbs of Melbourne or are willing to travel to the western suburbs to take the driving instruction classes. 

We intend to reach out to other regions of Melbourne as we grow and get more community participation & community contributors to this initiative.


We purchase driving lesson classes from Hyderabadi community based certified driving instructors in bulk and invite applications from newly arrived Hyderabadi students.

The students who will match the criteria will be given assistance by payment of partial fees of the driving classes thus minimizing the cost of attaining an Australian driving license.

Assistance will also be provided by partially bearing the cost on the day of driving test as well.

The approved student will pay 33% of cost, XYZ will pay 33% of the cost & 34% will be bulk purchase discount & community contribution by the Hyderabadi community-based driving instructor thus providing a value of 66% at each end of the process.


  • Student Contribution 33% of cost.
  • Student Assistance Program Contribution of 33% of Cost.
  • Bulk Discount 34% Cost reduction.
