What is 120 Countdown?

BACK TO TOP

120 Countdown is a free program connecting learner drivers with volunteer mentors to complete the 120 hours of driving practice needed before they can go for their P‑plates. Access to transport means access to opportunities. Public transport isn’t always an option, so having a driver’s licence opens the road to education and employment opportunities. The ability to drive also offers the chance to stay connected with friends and family when you live far away.

Watch our video to see the positive impact 120 Countdown has had on the life of a learner driver and our volunteer mentors.

If 120 Countdown isn’t the right opportunity for you, please let us know about any other volunteering opportunities you are seeking by going to the link below and completing form.

Our learners all face the common barrier of limited access to transport options. They may be young mothers, sole parents, unemployed, people from culturally diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal, people with a disability, teenagers or young adults.

Our volunteer programs are designed to support a safe and meaningful experience, for both our volunteers and our clients. Our Program Coordinators, foster peer groups of likeminded volunteers and offer practical training, including Driver Safety and Accidental Counsellor workshop.

We also ensure the cars used for lessons are all Uniting Fleet vehicles, with insurances and car maintenance kept up-to-date.
