New cars and look for Central Grampians LLEN learner driver program

Cars involved in a program that helps learner motorists gain experience and confidence behind the wheel are now clearly evident in Ararat and Stawell districts.

Central Grampians Local Learning and Employment Network has upgraded its fleet of L2P cars. 

Central Grampians LLEN provides the TAC L2P program in Ararat, Northern Grampians and Pyrenees municipalities.

Chief executive Jessica Paterson said the newly branded cars would make driving more enjoyable for young people involved in the program.

“We have several cars that our young people use to undertake driving practice with their mentors,” she said.

“A couple of the cars were due for an upgrade, so we were able to get the re-branding done at the same time. They look absolutely fantastic and our learners have been so excited to take the new cars out on the road and familiarise themselves with all the modern features.” 

Ms Paterson said two Mitsubishi ASX vehicles had been sponsored by Kings Cars Ararat. 

“We are extremely grateful to Kings Cars for coming on board as a major supporter,” she said. 

“They have been fantastic to deal with and their sponsorship will benefit many young drivers in the community.”

Kings Cars general manager Michael Smith said the company was proud to support the L2P program.

“We appreciate the help with the delivery of this important driver-
mentor program,” he said.

“We hope both the drivers and mentors enjoy many hours of safe driving in the new L2P vehicles.”

TAC funds the TAC L2P program, managed by Department of Transport and delivered by Central Grampians LLEN in partnership with the municipal shire councils.
