TAC L2P Wangaratta

TAC L2P Program - Wangaratta

The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) L2P Program is a community-based program developed to assist 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 coordinated by NESAY Inc.

Our Program matches eligible learners with a vehicle and fully licensed volunteer mentor driver to help learners gain driving experience.

Before being matched with a volunteer mentor and throughout the course of their L2P driving journey, participating learners have access to several free driving lessons with a professional driving instructor. This helps learners build their skills through the four stages of the Graduated Licensing System before getting on the road with a volunteer mentor.

Stage 1 – Basic car control

Stage 2 – Quiet streets

Stage 3 – Complex traffic

Stage 4 – Rehearsing solo

With a specific focus on reducing Victoria’s road toll, the TAC L2P program focuses on helping young people become safe, confident drivers. Additionally, it also provides an opportunity to interact with positive adult role models, gain confidence and move towards social independence. Volunteer mentors also have opportunities to connect with other mentors within their geographical region.

To be considered for a learner position within our TAC L2P Program, Learners need to meet the following criteria: *

  • be between 16 and 23 years old (please note applicants between 21-23 are only considered under special circumstances)*
  • hold a current Victorian learner’s permit
  • not have access to a supervising driver and/or an appropriate vehicle **
  • live in Rural City of Wangaratta*

If you’re accepted into the TAC L2P Program as a learner, NESAY’s L2P Coordinator will be responsible for your participation and ongoing advice.

* In some circumstances, we will consider applications up to 23 years of age, or outside our Local Government Area. Please contact us for further information.

** There are several factors that determine if a vehicle or supervising driver is appropriate. If you’re unsure, you can contact us on the number below.

The TAC L2P Program doesn’t just benefit learner drivers. In joining the TAC L2P Program, volunteer mentors work with and are responsible to NESAY, who will work with you and provide opportunities to directly help a young learner driver and connect with the community.

We have a full training program to ensure you’re well prepared to mentor a learner driver and understand your role as a supervising driver. Learners participating in the program also have access to free driving lessons with a professional instructor to build their skills before getting on the road with a volunteer mentor.

Volunteer mentors need to meet the following criteria to be considered for the TAC L2P program:

be over 21 years of age

  • hold a current full Australian driver’s licence
  • have a satisfactory driver license history report
  • be medically fit to drive (we may discuss this further through the application process)
  • not be currently working as a professional driving instructor
  • can commit approximately 1 hour per week

Additionally, as part of the application process, you will be asked to provide*:

  • a valid (volunteer) Working with Children’s Check
  • a satisfactory National Police Check
  • COVID-19 vaccination status

Note: Our Program can help with these if required.

"The TAC L2P Program is fantastic, I found it was really great for getting your hours up. My instructor taught me a lot of different things about different environments, driving through heavy rain and along windy roads. It is very beneficial and I believe everyone will get a lot out of the program."

“ I find the TAC L2P program very rewarding. Now retired, I have time to help those kids unable to complete their 120 hours for a variety of reasons to gain their P’s. A drivers licence is often essential to secure apprenticeships and other employment. Not only does this help them, I enjoy discussing all sorts of topics, hearing their views and seeing them succeed. Youngsters are our future, let’s give them the best start we can."
