TAC L2P Program

If you're a fully qualified driver who wants to teach the next generation of motorists, then Central Goldfields Shire Council would love to hear from you.

The TAC L2P Program is recruiting volunteer mentors to help learner drivers achieve their required 120 hours of driving practice.  For various reasons it can be difficult for some young people in our community to achieve the required hours to obtain a licence.

Learner drivers must complete a minimum 120 hours of driving in order to take a probationary driver’s licence test.

For more information about the L2P Program, or if you are interested in becoming a volunteer mentor, contact Council's L2P Coordinator on 5461 0615, or send an email to
