About the Programme

At the Learning Centre we will coach you on how to answer the questions in preparation to sit the Road Code theory test. More importantly, we will help you understand the rules and regulations of the road and why they exist.

Learner Licence Course

This is a 6-8 week programme designed to support learning to achieve the Learner Licence.

Restricted License Course

We will also support those with a Learner Licence as they prepare to sit for the Restricted Licence.

StreetTalk Defensive Driving

The StreetTalk Defensive Driving course will gain you NZQA units, and is designed to give you 6 months off your Restricted Licence.

* Please note that this course is the only programme that the Learning Centre is not able to fund.

Mature Drivers Course

The Mature Driving Course is a theory-based driver refresher course for mature road users (those 55 years and over).

It helps you to think about the way you drive, and you can discuss any problems you may be having on the road (such as with local roundabouts and intersections), and increase your knowledge of current road rules and recent law changes.

Th course also covers:

  • Hazard identification
  • Road user responsibility
  • Conditions that can affect your safety
  • Road rules and tips
  • Self analysis
  • Decision making
  • Route planning

By learning how to pre-plan your trips, staying on familiar routes and avoiding well known trouble spots, you will become a safer driver.

* Please note that to attend the course you must pre-register. If you are unable to attend on the day, please call (04) 5706020 or leave a message.
