Learning to drive can be a stressful and nerve-wracking experience
Not just for the learner but also for the parent or coach. Waka Kotahi and ACC have developed Drive, an online hub with all the tools learners and coaches need to get through the learning process together.
Drive is primarily designed to help young people become confident, capable drivers, and provides clear guidance throughout their journey from before they get their learner’s licence through to getting their full license. However, parents and coaches can also take advantage of lots of hints and tips to take all the stress out of teaching someone to drive.
Drivers between the ages of 16 and 24 are most at risk of being in road crashes; they make up 13% of licence holders but represent 30% of serious injuries on our roads, and more than 25% of fatalities. Drive has been developed specifically for this age group and is a free, learn-to-drive programme that helps young people get their licence and develop the right habits for a lifetime of safe driving.
