Community Hub Inc. as a non for profit organisation has been proud to deliver the TAC Colac Otway L2P Learner Driver Program since 2013. The TAC Colac Otway L2P Learner Driver Program is a volunteer based program that provides assistance to learner drivers that don’t have the resources to achieve the 120 mandatory hours of driving experience required to obtain a probationary licence.

The TAC Colac Otway L2P Learner Driver Program supports young people to address transport barriers in order to improve pathways to employment and further education within the community. In a rural locality, access to transport is particularly important for community members to engage with services.

To date the TAC Colac Otway L2P Learner Driver Program has supported 58 Learner Drivers to work toward and obtain their probationary licence. Community Hub Inc. has recently celebrated the success in obtaining an additional 4 years of funding for the TAC Colac Otway L2P Learner Driver Program as well as acknowledge the enormous contribution of the current volunteer mentors.

The TAC Colac Otway L2P Learner Driver Program requires support from local volunteers who are interested in supporting these learner drivers. Learner drivers would not enjoy the benefits of this program without the commitment from our valued volunteers.

What else do you need to know?

Before entering the TAC Colac Otway L2P Learner Driver Program each learner driver undertakes paid lessons with a professional driving instructor and be deemed safe to drive on the road.

Leaner drivers will also undertake paid lessons with a professional driving instructor as required throughout the program. This ensures that the volunteer mentor is not responsible for providing instruction and rather there to support the learner driver to achieve the hours they require to obtain their probationary licence.

Volunteer mentors will be required to participate in mentor training and will have the opportunity to attend quarterly meeting with other mentors to receive program updates and celebrate achievements.
