L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program
The 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.
With the assistance of volunteer mentor driving supervisors, Council helps coordinate this program in Frankston City for young people who may otherwise have no access to a supervising driver or vehicle. This is a free service of eligible young people to help them gain the necessary skills to obtain their Probationary Licence.
Learner Drivers Selection Criteria
To join the L2P program, you:
- Must not have access to either a vehicle, a supervising driver, or both
- Must be between 16 and 21 years of age
