New to Driving?
Below are some handy tips to get you started on your journey to becoming a safer driver.
Congratulations, you are about to start your journey! Very exciting! You are probably overwhelmed with all the things everyone wants you to learn. Take a deep breath and consider your strategy on how to accomplish that.
It is essential to know all the road signs and rules. Sign up for the free Waka Kotahi NZTA online driving programme if you haven’t done it yet. www.drive.govt.nz.
Tip! The better you know your signs and rules, the easier it will be to progress because you won’t need to “think” about responding to them.
A restricted licence is the second step of the three-stage process to get a full driver licence.
You must be at least 16 ½ years old before you can apply for your restricted licence and have held your learner licence for at least six months.
You’ll need to pass a practical driving test to show that you can drive safely on New Zealand roads.
The best way to prepare is by learning all the skills you need to pass. The more time you spend behind the wheel, the better.
Road crashes are the second greatest cause of death for 16-24-year-olds, and the leading cause of serious injury for young drivers.
Drive Go is designed to help young drivers learn the skills they need to pass their practical driving tests and to develop the right habits for a lifetime of safe driving.
Download the Drive Go app for free and get access to all the skills you need to know to pass the restricted licence test the first time.
