TAC Learner Driver Ad

This latest ad reminds learners and parents to fill out their log book: "If you want to turn your L into a P, you need to log 120 hours practice".
Parental involvement and support is crucial in helping learner drivers get their 120 hours practice. The ads show in a light-hearted way, how parents can support their children's driving practice.

In 2018, 14% of drivers who lost their lives were aged between 18 and 25 years, with this age group only representing around 10% of Victorian licence holders.
