Looking at getting your driver’s licence this year – now you can learn and get ready to be a great driver all online.
The New Zealand Transport Agency and ACC have created an interactive learning tool for learner and restricted drivers, and learner
driver coaches. Drive.govt.nz is a free website that steps you through the road code and the essential skills to make you a great driver.
The website helps you work your way through the road code and skill units such as basics of the road, speed limits and road signs.
You can also track your progress on your customised dashboard to see what you’ve covered and what you should look at next.
Test questions will check your progress to ensure you are on the right path and a section on tricky test questions is one to test your
parent’s knowledge out on. The website is a great way to learn to be safe and independent, says Council School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler,
“In a rural district like Selwyn having a driver’s license is a key step in having independence. We have a high level of young drivers compared to more urban areas who have access to public transport. Drive.govt.nz aims to make our learner and restricted drivers, great drivers”.
