TAC L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program

The TAC L2P - Learner Driver Mentor Program assists learners between 16 and 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.

TAC L2P Program

The TAC L2P program is funded by TAC, managed by Department of Transport and delivered by either local councils or not-for-profit community agencies.

Contact your nearest TAC L2P program to participate in the program as a learner driver or a mentor.

About the Program

The TAC L2P program is free for eligible young people aged 16-21 years. The young learners are matched with fully licensed volunteer mentors and have access to a sponsored vehicle, which they can use to get supervised driving experience.

The TAC has committed to funding $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
  • Support and training services for mentors

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