Guidelines for Developing and Operating Learner Driver Mentor Programs

This guide is designed to help you develop and operate Learner Driver Mentor Programs (LDMPs). These programs help learner drivers who have difficulty complying with the graduated driver licensing (GDL) system, which requires them to obtain a particular number of hours of supervised on-road driving experience in order to graduate from their learner license to their provisional licence.

Should you wish to apply for funding to develop and operate an LDMP, please refer to Queensland Government Department of Transport and Main Roads, Community Road Safety Grants page for more information.
