Lessons start Level 2
Thursday 12 May

- Bookings open now!

Driving lessons were allowed to re-commence in New Zealand at Level 2 on Thursday 14 May. So we happily recommenced driving lessons on that day.


Bookings for driving lessons and simulated driving tests are open now. Senior Driving Coaching will resume again in Level 1.
Please make online bookings now here.


If some of your existing 3 AA free driving lesson/s expired during Level 4 or 3 lockdown OR are yet to be used, your expiry date will be extended.

Please note that the AA 3 Free Driving Ignition programme was suspended by AA as of 1 June 2020. This means no new lessons can be claimed. However, if you had ALREADY claimed your three free driving lessons from AA and have remaining unused vouchers, these are still valid you can continue on with them. Watch this space for a new relaunched AA driving lesson programme in future. 

As a result of Covid-19, we have introduced new kaupapa (protocols) to help protect you and ourselves from any potential cross infection, prior to and during our lesson.  We will explain these closer to your next appointment.

Post Covid-19 we will continue with a higher level of sanitation and hygiene in-car, including not having lessons with unwell people for your continued safety and ours. 


Driving tests have now resumed :-)  Book your test here
