A popular driving series is back, helping young drivers learn the road code and encourage them to gain more experience in winter driving conditions.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and ACC are running the Drive Winter Series until 8 August, building on the success of the Drive Summer Series campaign, with young drivers incentivised to complete road code units and practice tests on the website drive.govt.nz and track drives in the Drive Go smart phone app.

People will earn points and entries into prize draws, with smartphones and driving lessons to be won.

Ensuring young drivers develop broad experience while on their learner licence, with their coach or parent in the passenger seat, is vital to reducing the risk of them being involved in a serious crash, once they are driving unsupervised on their restricted licence and is a focus of the series.

Drive is a free, learn-to-drive programme helping young people get their licence and develop the right habits for a lifetime of safe driving.
