TAC L2P learner driver mentor program

About the TAC L2P program

The TAC L2P Program helps disadvantaged Victorian learner drivers. These young drivers (aged 16 to 21) do not have access to a supervising driver or vehicle to gain the 120 hours driving experience needed to apply for a probationary licence.

The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and Department of Transport (DoT) funds this program. It is also supported by the Victorian Government and coordinated by the City of Casey.

The success of Casey’s L2P Program has been made possible due to the ongoing support from Berwick Motor Group who supplied two fully maintained vehicles used for the program. 

You will be matched with a fully licensed mentor and have access to a vehicle, which you can use to get your 120 hours of supervised driving experience.

For more information, download the L2P Learner Handbook for details.
