L2P learner driver mentor program

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.

About the Program

Young people are matched with fully licensed volunteer mentors and have access to a sponsored vehicle, which they can use to get supervised driving experience. L2P is free for eligible young people and is funded by the Transport Accident Commission.

The TAC has committed to funding an increased $33.4 million for the L2P program over the next four years, until 30 June, 2023.  

From 1 July 2019, the program will be expanded to include new features such as:

  • Increased number of learner places
  • Improved support for both learners and mentors across programs
  • Refined eligibility criteria 

We’ll provide more detailed information about the improvements to the program over the coming months.
