Other options would be printing the Application Form, filling it in and either posting or emailing it to us, for more information on this please go to page 8 of this application form.
What if I want a different laptop and not the preselected one?
The laptops have been pre-selected and CREATE is unable to approve any requests for alternative laptops/ devices.
Can I apply for the driving lessons/ test grant if I don’t yet have my learners permit?
No. You must hold a valid learners permit to apply for the driving lessons/ test grant.
What makes a CREATE Your Future Grant Scheme Application great?
The best applications we receive are the ones that are completed in full. If an application is lodged that does not have all the information we need, it will be deemed ineligible (which means that we can’t assess your application).
Can someone help me complete my Application?
We encourage all young people to complete the CREATE Your Future Application Form on their own however, you can ask for assistance from your carer, case worker, friend etc. if you require.
You will be sent a letter soon after the closing date advising you if your application has been successful or not. CREATE receives heaps of applications and unfortunately we do not have the funds to support each application. We do realise that it is disappointing if you miss out and we appreciate your understanding if you are not successful.
