L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program
The Yarra Ranges TAC L2P Program helps disadvantaged Victorian learner drivers, aged 16 to 21 with no access to a supervising driver or vehicle, to gain the 120 hours driving experience required to apply for a probationary licence.
The TAC L2P Program is funded by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), managed by the Department of Transport (DoT), supported by the Victorian Government and coordinated by Yarra Ranges Council.
Learner drivers are matched with fully licensed volunteer mentors. Using a sponsored vehicle, the learner and their mentor go out driving once a week, working towards 120 hours of driving practice.
