TAC L2P Program
About the program
The TAC L2P Program is funded by the TAC, managed by Department of Transport, and coordinated by Central Grampians LLEN. The initiative is free for eligible young people aged 16-21 years and matches learner drivers with fully licensed volunteer mentors. Once matched, the learner and their mentor have access to a suitable vehicle which can be used to help the young driver clock up the 120 hours of supervised driving they need for a probationary licence.
Joining the program
To qualify as an L2P learner driver, you must meet the following criteria:
- Be between 16 and 21 years of age
- Reside in the Pyrenees, Ararat or Northern Grampians council areas
- Hold a current learner’s permit
- Have limited access to a suitable vehicle and/or a supervising driver
Applications outside of the standard criteria will also be considered. Please contact the L2P Coordinator for further information.
Becoming a mentor
To become a volunteer mentor in a TAC L2P Program, you need to:
- Be over 21 years of age
- Hold a current full Victorian driver’s licence
- Pass a screening process (police check, driver history check, training and Working with Children Check)
Our mentors offer coaching, support and guidance to help each learner master the skills required to become a safe, fully licenced driver. Supervised driving sessions are complemented with professional driving lessons which the mentor may also attend.
Mentoring costs as little as one hour of your time each week and rewards you with the knowledge that you are providing a local young person with independence and safe driving skills.
