Learner Driver Programs

girl in learner driver class L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program

The L2P program, run by Good Shepherd Youth & Family Service and supported by Council, helps young people to gain their driver’s licence, by matching volunteers with learner drivers.

A driver licence can open up numerous life opportunities for a young person, including employment and education. Our L2P program promotes safe and lawful driving among younger drivers by engaging volunteers from the community to teach driving skills and provide a positive role model.

The program is free and available to young people aged 16 – 20 years old, who live, work or study in the City of Yarra.

Please note: The program is currently full and is not taking any new applications from young people until 1 August 2015.
