Geelong L2P Program Reaches Major Licence Milestone

More than 400 young drivers across the Geelong region have now gained their P-plates thanks to the TAC L2P Program.

The program supports young Victorian drivers to gain their independence, while also helping to reduce the risk of road trauma.

More than 38,000 hours of collective supervised driving has taken place since the Geelong program began in 2009, helping local learner drivers get their licence.

The TAC L2P program is a vital mentor program that matches learners without access to a vehicle or supervising driver with a volunteer mentor, L2P car and free professional driving lessons, to help reach the critical minimum 120 hours they need to get their P-Plates.

Since its launch in 2008, the statewide program has helped 15,000 young learner drivers log 656,757 hours and supported more than 7,000 participants to get their P-Plates.

The program is a partnership between the Victorian Government, local councils and community organisations, the Department of Transport and the Transport Accident Commission.

It supports the Victorian Road Safety Strategy 2021-2030 which aims to halve road deaths and reduce serious injuries by 2030 and eliminate road deaths by 2050.
