TAC L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program

The TAC L2P Program helps young learner drivers gain supervised driving experience and become safe drivers.    An L2P Learner Driver Mentor instructing a student in a driving lesson.

The program provides eligible Victorian learner drivers aged 16 to 21 (and in some circumstances, up to 23) who don’t have 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, supported by the Victorian Government and coordinated by Whittlesea Community Connections with the help of local volunteer driver mentors.

How does it work?

The TAC L2P Program matches learners from 16 to 21 years old with a fully-licensed volunteer mentor driver and practice vehicle to help them gain driving experience.An L2P volunteer mentor with a learner holding their probationary license.

Before being matched with a mentor, learners participating in the program can access up to seven free driving lessons with a professional instructor. These lessons can be accessed at any time throughout the program and can help learners build their skills before getting on the road with a volunteer mentor or to address any areas of weakness or concern identified by their mentor.

The program focuses on helping young people become safe, confident drivers in an effort to reduce Victoria’s road toll. It also provides an opportunity for young people to interact with positive adult role models, gain confidence and move towards social independence.
