Learner drivers under 21
Learner drivers under 21 in Victoria must have at least 120 hours of supervised driving experience before taking their probationary licence test.

Young people are matched with licensed volunteer mentors who have received supervising driver training. Mentors and learners have the use of a fully maintained vehicle with a minimum 4-star ANCAP safety rating.
Learner drivers also receive up to seven professional lessons to evaluate their progress at the different stages of the program.
