New Wheels for Young People

Helping young people take the wheel.

Central Grampians Local Learning and Employment Network’s (CGLLEN) L2P program has grown by four wheels! CGLLEN were granted a new car by the Department of Justice for the VicRoads and TAC-funded L2P learner-driver program in 2016. L2P is a free service offered to young people who need to complete their 120 hours of driving on L-plates, but do not have access to a car or mentor driver. 

Central Grampians LLEN offers the L2P program in three regions: Northern Grampians (Stawell), Ararat, and the Pyrenees (Beaufort). Each learner-driver is matched with a certified mentor driver and an L2P car at no financial cost. Central Grampians LLEN is passionate about supporting young people in rural communities and providing them with opportunities to take the, proverbial and literal, wheel.

The new L2P car, supplied by the Department of Justice through Community Services General Manager Mark Sultana, is a blue 2016 Toyota Yaris. It has automatic transmission and offers a smooth and zippy ride in and out of the L2P program areas. The car will be available to learner-drivers based in the Pyrenees region.

The L2P coordinators at CGLLEN would like to thank Mark Sultana and the Department of Justice for providing the new car for local young people to use.
