L2P learner driver mentor program

Council offers the VicRoads L2P learner driver mentor program to young people aged 16 to 20 living in Maroondah, who experience significant barriers in learning to drive. 

Please note: the L2P program is currently at capacity, any new learner applications will be processed in 2018.

About the L2P learner driver mentor program

The L2P program provides an opportunity for young people (aged 16 to 20) who experience significant barriers in learning to drive. We match participants with a fully licensed mentor to complete their 120 hours driving experience. 

This 120 hours of experience is required to obtain their probationary license. 

Giving young people the chance to learn how to drive provides a platform for gaining independence as well as supporting growth in education and employment. 

This program is run with support from the Rotary Club of Ringwood and the State Government of Victoria.

Learn to drive

If you are a young person eligible for the L2P program, or if you would like to talk with someone further, please contact our Youth Services team on 03 9294 5703.

Become a volunteer mentor driver

Our young people can’t achieve this significant milestone without the help from adult volunteers. 

The program is fully supported by Maroondah City Council's Youth Services team and our volunteer mentor drivers are given comprehensive training and support throughout the program.  

To register your interest in becoming a volunteer mentor driver for the L2P program, see Careers@Maroondah
