L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program

The L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program supports young people with significant barriers to learning to drive with the completion of their supervised driving experience.

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.

The L2P program helps them get their 120 hours.

About the L2P program

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.
