  • Attend a brief induction and get full support to mentor a young driver to success
  • Mentors use suggestions from professionaldriving instructors covering attitudes to driving,planning safe trips, recognising and masteringdifficult driving conditions just to name a few...
  • Build up our community through volunteering!
