It was so emotional when a young girls with Downs Syndrome sat behind the wheel of the car and said "I feel so normal"... Cue tears... Driving is so powerful and some people simply cannot afford to learn, which is why we exist. Join us on Sunday 1st March www.thecds.org.uk/murder-mystery/

We conducted a survey and asked people how they felt their job prospects would improve if they had a full UK driving licence on a scale of 1-10.

With 10 being very confident about their job prospects.

The results are incredible and we would like to ask you how you feel about your current situations and future.

Would you be able to do what you are doing without a full UK driving licence?

What did passing your driving test mean to your future? Let us know as we do log your comments.

The results of a report by the University of Nottingham identified that people from the poorest backgrounds are most likely to be killed in road accidents involving unlicensed and uninsured drivers.

We ask ourselves why this is the case.

Is this because they are unable to access jobs that will allow them to fund driving lessons?

Are these vulnerable people being forced to use cars to access jobs they couldn't get to?

We exist because people in poverty and other marginalised groups feel discriminated against when applying for jobs.

The slide below, highlights that there are more than just driving jobs required an applicant to have a full UK driving licence.
