The L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program is an exciting free program available to 16-20 year olds living in the Colac Otway Shire who are facing significant barriers in gaining the 120 hours of driving experience needed to take the probationary licence test.

The L2P assists learners under 21 years of age, who do not have access to a supervising driver or vehicle, to gain the driving experience required to apply for a probationary licence.

Young people are matched with fully licensed volunteer mentors and have access to use a sponsored vehicle to gain supervised driving experience. L2P is free for eligible young people and is funded by the Victorian Government Transport Accident Commission and local community businesses, organisations and sporting clubs who sponsor the program.

The program does not substitute for professional driving lessons, and L2P does not pay for the probationary driving test itself.

Learner drivers accepted into the L2P program have lessons with a professional driving instructor before they start driving with a L2P mentor.

Please contact the L2P program coordinator to check your eligibility. Learner drivers can apply to join the L2P program through local school wellbeing staff, Youth support services, job service providers or by filling in an application form at Community Hub Inc.
