L2P Driver Program

Moreland Learner Driver Mentor Program

L2PThe Moreland L2P Program assists disadvantaged young people to gain the 120 hours of driving experience required to gain their Probationary Licence, and to become good, safe drivers.
Volunteer mentors work with them on a one-to-one basis to achieve this. At any one time, up to 50 young people participate as learner drivers, and a further 50 volunteer mentors are involved in the program.

Volunteer Mentors

Who can volunteer?

50 volunteer mentors are involved in the program. Volunteer mentors are a diverse cross-section of local adults who have been interviewed, screened (police checked, working with children checked, VicRoads licence checked), and trained by VicRoads before being matched with a learner driver. They provide weekly one-to-one practical, on-road driving supervision, in a range of driving conditions including some night driving. A car and petrol are supplied.

Volunteer mentors are appropriate role models, who are making a positive impact on the learner, and improving community road safety and community connectedness at the same time. On-going, one-to-one support is provided by the coordinator.

Volunteer mentor eligibility requirements:

  • 25 years and older
  • Living in Moreland (View map)
  • Full Victorian Driver’s Licence
  • Confident driver with successful driving record
  • Available to dedicate approximately two hours per week
  • Interested in working with young people, compassionate, patient and respectful
