L2P learner driver mentor program
Helping young people get their drivers licence
The VicRoads L2P learner driver mentor program assists learners under 21 years of age, who do not have access to a supervising driver or vehicle, to gain the driving experience required to apply for a probationary licence.
Young people are matched with fully licensed volunteer mentors and have access to a sponsored vehicle to gain supervised driving experience.
L2P is free for eligible young people and is funded by the TAC.
The program is not a substitute for professional driving lessons, and does not pay for the probationary driving test itself.
The L2P program is funded by VicRoads and run by the Inner Northern Local Learning and Employment Network on behalf of Merri-bek City Council. It has already helped hundreds of young people in the Merri-bek area.
