L2P Learner Program

Supporting young drivers to get their licence

Do you know a young person who is currently learning to drive?  Would they benefit from having an experienced driver support them to obtain their probationary licence?

Getting a drivers licence is an important milestone in a young person’s life. It opens up opportunities for employment, as well as increasing confidence, a sense of responsibility, and independence.

The L2P program matches young learners with a driving mentor, and provides free professional lessons.

How does L2P work?

The young person drives with their mentor on a regular basis to gain the 120 hours of  experience needed to sit for their probationary licence.

The program is entirely voluntary, and focuses on empowering young people to engage with their mentor while learning to drive. 

Young people often form significant bonds with their driving mentor and benefit greatly from the time spent with a caring, responsible adult.

The driver does not need access to their own car, both automatic and manual vehicles are available through the program.

Who is eligible?

To be eligible for the program the young person should meet the following criteria:

  • Hold a valid Victorian learner’s permit
  • Aged 16-21 years old
  • Live in Melbourne’s eastern region
  • Be on (or previously on) a DHHS order in Out of Home Care
