The Alpine Shire L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program is currently looking for more community-minded people to volunteer as supervising drivers for young learner drivers in the shire.
Mentors are not driving instructors, but they help young people by giving them opportunities to drive. The learners have regular lessons and are assessed by our professional driving instructor to determine the level at which they are competent to drive.
We have quite a few new learner drivers coming onto the program and are particularly looking for supervisors in the Bright and Myrtleford areas.
Mentors will have a full drivers licence, undertake a Police Check, Driver History Check and Working with Children Check and be able to commit a minimum of 2 hours per week to work with a young person. Volunteers also undertake comprehensive training conducted by VicRoads appointed L2P Mentor Training Facilitators. For mentor training dates, contact our L2P Coordinator on the details below.
As a volunteer with the program you will be invited to regular mentor meetings where mentors share their experiences with learner drivers, and receive resources and information about safer driving.
If you are interested in volunteering with the program, helping young people in our community become safe drivers, call L2P Coordinator on 0418 736 665 or email L2P@alpineshire.gov.vic.au.
