School Drive Subsidy


    The School Drive Subsidy is available to NSW residents in areas where there is no public transport, to drive an eligible student all or part of the way to school. The subsidy is only intended to partly offset the cost of using a private vehicle to drive the eligible student and is not intended to cover all costs.

    The subsidy is for driving school students to school or to the nearest transport pick up point, by car, motorcycle or boat.

    The School Drive Subsidy scheme replaces the previous Private Vehicle Conveyance (PVC) subsidy scheme which is being phased out from December 2016.
