TAC L2P Program + Drivelink
Our Learner Driver Mentor Program is a Department of Transport
initiative which assists young learner drivers to gain driving experience.
The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) L2P Program is a community-based program assisting eligible young Victorian learner drivers between the ages of 16 and 21 years (and in some circumstances, up to 23 years) who do not have access to a supervising driver, or an appropriate vehicle to gain driving experience required for a probationary license.
The TAC L2P Program is funded by the TAC, administered by the Department of Transport, and delivered locally by Moonee Valley City Council. Volunteer Mentors are an integral and highly valued part of the TAC L2P program. Enquiries and applications from people who want to be considered as a Volunteer Mentor are very welcome.
The TAC L2P Program is free for learner drivers who meet the eligibility criteria. Once accepted into the program, eligible learners are matched with a fully licensed Volunteer Mentor and have access to a program car which is used to gain supervised driving experience.
Further information is linked below. If you want to become a learner driver, check out the Learners section. If you want to support young people by volunteering as a mentor, please click here.
TAC L2P Program - Learners
Learner drivers who are accepted into the program re given professional driving lessons before being matched with a Volunteer Mentor. Together the learner and mentor work towards achieving 120 hours of driving practice.
To be considered for a learner position within one of the TAC L2P Programs, you must meet the following criteria:
- You must live, work, study or hang out in Moonee Valley
- You are aged between 16 and 21 years (in some circumstances we will consider applicants up to 23 years)
- You have your learner's permit
- You have no access to a fully licenced supervising driver and/or vehicle

Note: All learner applications are assessed based on answers to the questions within the application form and prioritised accordingly
If you have questions please contact the Valley Youth team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The DriveLink program is a partnership between Moonee Valley City Council and Transurban. It provides migrants and refugees with supervised in-car experience to prepare for their driving test and safe solo driving in a new country. The program is very low-cost for participants, thanks in part to volunteer mentor drivers, who support learners to practice their driving and take their driving test.
