The TAC Baw Baw L2P Program:
The TAC L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program is a community based program providing on road driving experience to learner drivers who would otherwise find it difficult to accrue the minimum amount of experience required. 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. Through mentor driving supervisors this will give admission to those young people who may have no access to a supervisor driver or vehicle or may not be able to afford professional driving lessons, to gain the necessary skills to obtain their Probationary Licence.
L2P is free for eligible young people.
Learner Drivers Selection Criteria:
To join the TAC L2P program, you need to:
- Be between 16 and 20 years of age
- Hold a current Learner’s Permit
- Not have access to either a vehicle, a supervising driver, or both
