Once your learner is driving well and has made good progress, and feels up for some more advanced driving, we recommend booking professional driving lessons in Auckland. This is essential, as Waiheke is missing several important road features and hazards, such as: traffic lights; multi-laned roundabouts; heavy traffic conditions; motorways; one-way streets; multi-laned roads. We recommend A1 Driving School.
How much practice does a learner need?
The advice from the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) is that your learner will need at least 120 hours of driving practice before they should sit their Restricted licence test. It may seem like alot, but it’s recommended in order to become a safe driver. Keep a log of their driving hours to help with this.
We have a vision of zero deaths and serious injuries on New Zealand roads. A vision where everyone, whether they’re walking, cycling, driving, motorcycling or taking public transport, can get to where they’re going safely. It might sound impossible, but Aotearoa has a plan to get there. It’s called Road to Zero.
