Please find attached a brochure for the Salvation Army Drive for Life TAC L2P program. The Salvation Army are recruiting volunteers to be mentors for their program.
TAC L2P Program
The TAC L2P Program assists disadvantaged Victorian learner drivers aged 16 to 21 with no access to a supervising driver or vehicle to gain the 120 hours driving experience required to apply for a probationary licence.
The TAC L2P Program is funded by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and Department of Transport (DoT), supported by the Victorian Government, and coordinated by The Salvation Army North/West Youth Services.
How does it work?
The TAC L2P Program matches learners from 16 to 21 years old with a fully-licensed volunteer driver and practice vehicle to help them gain driving experience.
Before being matched with a volunteer mentor, learners participating in the program have access to up to seven free driving lessons throughout the program with a professional instructor. This helps learners build their skills before getting on the road with a volunteer mentor and continue progressing through the four stages of the Graduated Licensing System.
The program focuses on helping young people become safe, confident drivers, in an effort to reduce Victoria’s Road toll. It also provides an opportunity for young people to interact with positive adult role models, gain confidence and move towards social independence.
