MEDIA RELEASE - New year new look for Glenelg L2P

It’s a new year and a new look for the Glenelg L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program.

The highly successful program, which helps young people across the shire attain their 120 hours of supervised learner driver experience, has been officially rebranded following a new funding commitment from the Transport Accident Commission (TAC).

The program will now be referred to as the TAC L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program, complete with a new logo to reflect the name change.

L2P Program Coordinator Rachel Brough said alongside the rebranding there were a number of other exciting changes for program participants.

“With a new funding agreement until 2023, the program has a new name and logo, the TAC L2P Program. However this isn’t the only new change for the program in 2020,” she said.

“We are thrilled to announce we have welcomed a new car to the L2P fleet thanks to Callaghan’s motors - our learner drivers and volunteer mentors can now practice in a brand new Holden Trax.

“Not only is this car suitable for learners to sit their probationary test in, it is also a larger and more inclusive vehicle, ensuring access for all of our current and prospective program participants and mentors.”

Mrs Brough said 2020 would also mark a significant anniversary for the program and encouraged previous participants and supporters to share their stories.

“This year we are celebrating our 10th year of operation and we are interested to hear how the L2P program has impacted our community,” she said.

“If you have ever been a steering committee member, mentor, learner driver or even a friend or family member of someone that has been involved with the program, please get in contact so we can hear how the L2P has made an impact on your life.”

To share your L2P success story, please contact Rachel Brough, L2P Coordinator on 5522 2334 or email l2p@glenelg.vic.gov.au.

The TAC L2P program is funded by TAC, managed by Department of Transport and delivered by the Glenelg Shire Council.

The program assists learners under 21 years of age, without access to a supervising driver or vehicle, to gain the 120 hours of driving experience required to apply for a probationary licence. Young people are matched with fully licensed volunteer mentors, and use a sponsored vehicle to gain supervised driving experience.

To register your interest, either as a learner driver or mentor, please visit the YourSay Glenelg website.
