Community Bank Monbulk & District in conjunction with Yarra Ranges Council and Tribe Monbulk Youth are bringing the TAC L2P Program to Monbulk.

L2P is a community-based program developed to assist eligible young Victorian learner drivers between the ages of 16 and 21 years who do not have access to a supervising driver, or an appropriate vehicle to gain driving experience required for a probationary licence.

Volunteer mentors are an integral and highly valued part of the L2P program, providing a unique opportunity for young people to interact with positive adult role models, gain confidence and move towards social independence. One to two hours a week can make a big difference.

This program utilises a vehicle dedicated to the L2P program, you do not need to use your own vehicle.

A free mentor workshop will be held in Monbulk at the Community Hub on Saturday 3 February from 9am until 3pm.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer mentor and help create the next generation of safe drivers, please register your details with L2P@yarraranges.vic.gov.au, scan the QR code or contact the Yarra Ranges Council L2P team on 0417 534 945.
