The Licencing the Wimmera program aims to assist Learner Drivers who have been identified as facing a significant barrier or disadvantage which may prohibit the from gaining the necessary driving experience required to apply for a probationary licence. Many people lack the support networks to facilitate such driving experience or face issues with finance or lack of access to a vehicle.
Volunteer Mentors are required to assist Learner Drivers to gain the necessary driving experience to obtain their probationary licence. Volunteer Mentors are required from Nhill, Dimboola, Horsham, Warracknabeal, Hopetoun and Goroke.
Mentors will need:
- to have a full drivers licence
- participated in training our mentor training
- to have a police check
- working with children’s check and
- other checks as required by the program.
- to commit to at least one hour of driving per week
Driving times and days are worked out according to the suitability of both Mentor and Learner. Organisational vehicles are used both the vehicles and volunteers are fully covered by our insurances.
