adult 1869397 1920

The Learner Driver Mentor Program has received a huge funding boost from the State Government of approximately $1million per year to help young Tasmanians get their licences.

However the program is in desperate need of more driver mentors, with over 500 young Tasmanians on the program’s waiting list.

Garry O’Byrne, Co-ordinator of Driver Mentoring Tasmania, believes that even if the program doubles its mentors, there will still be a waiting list.

Listen as Garry joins Martin Agatyn to discuss the extra funding and the program’s need for more volunteer mentors.
