United Way Ballarat

L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program

United Way Ballarat has taken on the role of operating Ballarat's successful L2P program in conjunction with VicRoads and the TAC.

The Graduated Licensing System makes it compulsory for learner drivers under 21 years of age to obtain 120 hours of supervised driving experience prior to taking the probationary licence test.

For most people, learner driver experience is gained through parents or other family members in family owned vehicles with the support of professional lessons.

The Victorian Government recognises that a minority of young people will find it difficult to gain the driving experience required.

The VicRoads L2P - learner driver mentor program 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.

The program relies on community support to provide vehicles and on Volunteers for the mentoring.

To see one young learner through the program and to gaining the experience to sit for their licence it costs approximately $1,600.
