YACVic profiles the value of the L2P driver-mentor program in supporting disadvantaged and isolated young people to improve their prospects for education, work and social connection, while preparing for their probationary licenses. We call for new commitments to meet the higher costs of L2P’s rural service delivery, to better support L2P coordinators to work with marginalised young people, and to address the need amongst unlicensed young people aged 21-25, who are not currently eligible for this kind of driver-mentor support.
