Want to learn to drive but don’t have access to a car or teacher? Perhaps you’re a good teacher and want to volunteer some time to help others?
L2P is a program for 16-20 year-olds, and volunteers who live, work or study in Brimbank. This program helps anyone facing significant barriers to achieving the mandatory 120 hours driving experience to get a Victorian license, such as difficulty finding a vehicle or a supervising driver.
It’s funded by the Transport Accident Commission and delivered with Department of Transport. There’s no charge to be part of L2P. All costs and insurances are covered by the program.
To participate in the L2P program you must:
- Be 16-20 years of age
- Have a current learner’s permit
- Not have access to a vehicle, or a driver, or both.
Your school, community agencies or parents can refer you to L2P. Or you can contact us yourself. We’ll send you an Information Kit with all the paperwork. Once completed, return the paperwork to us at the L2P Program.
This program has a waiting list that new applicants join once we get your completed paperwork. When a place becomes available, a team member will contact you to arrange a time to catch up and discuss the program.
Our L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program is an exciting opportunity for community volunteers if you’re interested in helping disadvantaged young people to expand their horizons and access new pathways.
Thinking of volunteering for L2P? You’ll do comprehensive training to become a driving mentor, i.e. a supervising driver. The young drivers have a number of lessons with a professional driving instructor, before being matched with you. Then professional lessons are integrated throughout the program.
If you want to help young people, are over 21, hold a current Victorian driver’s license, and successfully complete our screening checks – we’d love you to join this program.
