Why have a learner licence?

Actually, this is the safest period for driving!

The reasons for this are:

  • There is an “L” plate displayed and this makes other drivers give you more space
  • As a driver you operate at a slower speed
  • You will have an experienced driver in the car with you, watching out for danger.

Restricted Stage

Restricted licence drivers are four times more likely to crash than learner drivers! Why? Because you drive solo now – with nobody in the car to warn you about stuff. Again, if you had done the hard work earlier, you would be able to handle most common situations. Here, you also run the risk of picking up some bad habits – so be aware of that.

Learn the Road Rules with Drive

Drive is a free website and learning tool created by the New Zealand Transport Agencyand ACC. It’s the first phase of an ongoing project designed to help young people become confident, capable drivers.

SITTING YOUR LICENCE

LEARN THE ROAD CODE

LEARN THE ROAD CODE

  • Explore the NZ Road Code and unlock the official practice test.

  • Move from learner to legend with day step by step driving skills.

  • Wherever you are in your licence journey, save your progress, gain points and unlock official practice tests.

  • Explore free lessons and resources to make things less stressful.

  • Everything on Drive was produced with the help of the Transport Agency’s driving experts and driving instructors. So you know it’s accurate and trustworthy.

  • Our research has shown that young drivers are more likely to crash during their first 6 months of having a restricted licence than at any other time in their life. That’s not because young drivers are bad drivers. It’s because they lack the experience and knowledge of people that have been driving for many years.

  • Young drivers often get behind the wheel before they have a good understanding of what makes a great driver. Drive is packed full of helpful tools and content that make learning the road rules, and learning to drive, easy and fun.
