What We Do
Drive-To-Work assists low income or previously incarcerated persons to restore their driving privileges so they can drive to work and keep a job. Recognizing how important a driver's license is to many jobs, Drive-To-Work provides legal and other services and is the only organization in Virginia directly addressing this issue.
Since its founding 2007, Drive-To-Work has grown to provide multiple programs to help individuals restore their driving privileges. They are:
• Individual legal representation before courts and agencies to remove the barriers to getting a license;
• Suggestions of legislative and administrative changes to improve opportunities for all suspended Virginia drivers to restore their driving privileges, consistent with public safety;
• Educational programs, including operating DTW Driving School (dtwdrivingschool.org), which offer driver improvement clinics and other courses required by DMV;
• Pre-release seminars on “How To Get Your License Back” for offenders at Department of Corrections correctional centers.
Our #GivingTuesdayGreaterLYH greatest need is reaching potential clients who are not aware our services exist.
