The L2P Driver Mentor Program is operated locally by the Ballarat Foundation with funding provided by TAC through Vic Roads, with assurance of further funding provided for the next four years. The program is a state wide program that matches young learner drivers with a supervising driver mentor.
The young people on the program have limited or no access to a supervising driver. The purpose is to enable the learner driver to meet the required 120 hours of driving practise prior to gaining their Probationary licence. Currently 5 cars are in use for driving session which enabled 35 learners in 2018 to pass their exam. This program not only assists youth in gaining their licence but also helps with them gain employment and increases their social engagement.
