Driving opportunities for disadvantaged people

Popular Stories

THE Transport Accident Commission’s, TAC, L2P program is working across Mitchell Shire to support learner drivers between 16 and 21 without a car or supervising driver to gain driving hours.

Delivered by community service organisation Berry Street, the L2P program has been operating in Victoria for 12 years, pairing volunteer mentor drivers and cars with young people looking to gain their probationary license.

Member for Euroa Annabelle Cleeland said the program was an important service for young people across the region.

“Disadvantaged and vulnerable members of our community may not have access to a car and therefore a license, which is incredibly limiting,” she said.

“This program opens up economic opportunities for young people and has positively impacted so many lives over more than a decade of operation.”

Ms Cleeland encouraged people to get in touch with Berry Street and apply to join the program.

“If you are between 16 and 21 and don’t have access to a car or supervising driver please don’t be shy in coming forward and enquiring,” she said.

“This program can be life changing and transformative. The mentor drivers are amazing and you certainly won’t regret getting involved.”
