Learner Driver Mentor Program

Are you between 16 and 20 years of age and have no way to get 120 hours driving practice?

City of Melton and Moorabool Shire Councils in partnership with Vicroads, fund and support Djerriwarrh Community & Education Services to deliver the L2P learner driver mentor program.

Road safety and helping young local disadvantaged learner drivers attain their required driving practice is the primary focus of the program, and L2P has enjoyed over 100 Probationary licence successes over the past seven years. Volunteer supervising driver mentors come from all walks of life but share a common goal, helping our local youth and contributing to the safety of our roads.

If you are aged 16 to 20, and have no access to a supervising driver or vehicle to assist with your 120 hours driving practice, the L2P learner driver mentor program may be able to help you.

Djerriwarrh Community & Education Services will provide ongoing support to both mentors and young people. Kim, the L2P Project Officer, would also love to hear from community volunteers interested in becoming part of the L2P team in our municipality.

L2P learner driver mentor program- Volunteers

We’ve got the car- do you have 1 hour per week to help a young person get their driving licence?

City of Melton and Moorabool Shire Councils in partnership with Vicroads, fund and support Djerriwarrh Community & Education Services to deliver the L2P learner driver mentor program. Road safety and helping young local disadvantaged learner drivers attain their required driving practice is the primary focus of the program, and L2P has enjoyed over 100  P licence successes over the 7 past years. Volunteer supervising driver mentors come from all walks of life but share a common goal, helping our local youth and contributing to the safety of our roads.

Community volunteers are welcome to join our Melton & Moorabool L2P learner driver mentor program where supervising driver mentors assist a young disadvantaged learner driver with an hour per week of driving supervision. VicRoads provide training (10 hours) for the volunteer mentors. A fully fuelled car is provided. Djerriwarrh Community & Education Services will provide ongoing support to both mentors and young people. There is currently a waiting list of eligible young learner drivers so more volunteers are needed to assist these young people. Kim, the L2P Project Officer, would love to hear from community volunteers interested in becoming part of the L2P team in our municipality.
