The L2P Program is a free initiative to help young drivers achieve the skills required to gain their probationary licence. The program assists disadvantaged young people aged 16 to 21 who have difficulty in achieving the required 120 hours of supervised driving experience. Some learner drivers have family, personal or financial situations that make it difficult to get enough supervised driving experience to qualify for their probationary licence. The use of a sponsored vehicle is provided for all supervised mentored driving lessons which are also complemented with free driving lessons with a professional driving instructor.
