“We en­sure the young per­son is ad­e­quately sup­ported to get the nec­es­sary hours and nec­es­sary ex­pe­ri­ence,” Mr Win­ters said. “We see a very high suc­cess rate of those that go on to get their li­cense which is re­ally great.”

Stu­dents from Euroa Sec­ondary Col­lege are among the 15 par­tic­i­pants from around the shire in­volved in the pro­gram and prin­ci­pal Harold Che­ung said it’s great to be able to have it of­fered to the school com­mu­nity.

The L2P pro­gram will be host­ing a train­ing ses­sion on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 15, 9am at the old SES build­ing at the coun­cil of­fices (en­ter via Bury Street), for those want­ing to be­come a men­tor.

Men­tors don’t re­quire any for­mal qual­i­fi­ca­tions and will un­der­take the VicRoads su­per­vis­ing driver trainer pack­age to en­sure they are equipped with the skills needed.

Mr Win­ters is en­cour­ag­ing all of those in­ter­ested to con­tact him for fur­ther de­tails on 0437 762 520 or bwin­ters@berrystreet.org.au
