Zara, an L2P learner driver, recently got her licence after 90 hours of mentorship from Frank. Zara has nothing but praise for her mentor, who taught her to drive over 9 months.
"Without the L2P program and Frank's tireless efforts," she said. "I can safely say that I wouldn't have learnt to drive at all. Before hearing of the L2P program, I was quite resigned to public transport and the odd lift as my only form of transport.”
The L2P program mentors provide learner drivers like Zara with the confidence to be a safer driver and the opportunities that come with gaining a driver's licence.
Since getting her Ps, Zara has said she has far more independence and freedom.
“I work as a nanny for families and my transport time has more than halved as a result," she said. "I don't have to carry my groceries in boxes by foot or train. I can meet friends for coffee or drop past uni whenever I need.”
Thank you to Frank and all our L2P mentor drivers for providing a much needed community program for young people in need and creating L2P success stories like Zara’s.
