The L2P Learner Driver Program is a joint initiative between Kooweerup Regional Health Service and Cardinia Shire that assists learner drivers gain the minimum 120 hours of driving experience needed to get their license.
Many kids don’t have easy access to a car, or anyone to sit in a car with them for 120 hours. L2P, a VicRoads initiative funded by TAC, connects these learner drivers with trained community volunteers. Even the car is provided by the program.
The driving sessions occur weekly for a minimum of 1 hour.
