Mature driver courses coming up

Current location in the site

Courses aimed at helping mature drivers gain skills to be safer on the road are being offered to Selwyn residents in February and March.

The courses are a fun and easy way for people over 60 to refresh their driving and road rule knowledge. The course covers road rules, planning car trips, using safe routes and avoiding peak traffic times. It is designed to be informative, enjoyable and informal. There are no tests and participants receive a certificate of attendance. Morning tea and lunch is provided for those booked to attend.

  • Darfield on Tuesday 14 February
  • Rolleston on Monday 20 February
  • Lincoln on Wednesday 1 March
  • Prebbleton on Wednesday 15 March
  • Leeston on Wednesday 29 March.

The Council and local trained volunteers can also offer a free Carfit check for mature drivers which checks a car’s safety features with the driver. The check looks at mirrors, seatbelt, seat and steering wheel position and other safety features.

If you are interested in attending a check or a confident driving course please phone Ngaire on 347 2901 or email
