L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program
The Yarra Ranges L2P program helps learner drivers get their 120 hours of required driving experience.
Learner drivers are matched with fully licenced volunteer mentors. Using a sponsored vehicle, the learner and their mentor go out driving once a week, working towards 120 hours of driving practice.
L2P can also provide up to 7 free professional driving lessons by a registered driving instructor.
