The Drive programme

The Drive programme was developed for young drivers as they are the most at risk on the road. They’re over-represented in New Zealand’s road crash statistics and road crashes are the second greatest cause of death for 16 to 24-year-olds. Road crashes are also the leading cause of serious injury for this age group. 

Drive aims to be the go-to resource for learning to drive in New Zealand.
