The Hobart Police and Community Youth Club (Hobart PCYC) operates a Learner Driver Mentor Program (LDMP) in order to provide assistance to members of the community
who have limited or no ability to access to a supervisor driver and/or vehicle to gain the required experience to acquire a provisional licence.
The attainment of a provisional licence has the positive affect of assisting to achieve increased level of independence as well as a
greater level of social inclusion by providing improved access to education, employment, community activities and family and support networks.
Volunteer mentors supervise participant learner drivers to provide assistance with gaining required driving hours.
The Hobart PCYC LDMP is not a replacement for professional driver training tuition. Learners participating in the Hobart PCYC LDMP are
also encouraged to participate in driving lessons from a recognised driving school should they wish to do so.
Learner Drivers should also note that one (1) free lesson may be obtained under the 'keys2drive' program.
