Being an L2P volunteer driving mentor can be a challenging experience. Many of our learners have had no experience in a driving culture. Others are from right hand driving countries, while most have somewhat limited English skills.

Through patience, persistence and a capacity to manage the unexpected, our volunteer mentors also gain a greater understanding of the refugee experience and develop new friendships, as well as fostering safe driving skills that enhance opportunities for work, family outings and community participation.

Once your mentor application is approved and you have completed the Working With Children Check, we will arrange an informal briefing or encourage you to attend a New Mentor Workshop.

All new learner drivers in the L2P program are expected to attend a short Pairing Up workshop with their driving mentor at SCARF office. The L2P managers will arrange the time for new drivers and their mentors to meet
