Hamish's Story

Hamish started with Nexus in 2020 and told us that he was having trouble doing the computer-based test for his learner drivers’ license.

The Nexus Capacity Building Team found out that Hamish could answer 35 questions in person instead of doing the online test. Hamish then worked hard with the team to get through the Tasmanian Road rules book and he passed the test.

Hamish then did mentor driving with his support team and passed his Ps test this year. He stayed dedicated and positive to achieve his goal and his support team are very proud of him!
