Learner Licence Holder
Learner drivers MUST have a supervisor* whilst they practice their driving.
As a TEAM, we can provide the knowledge, skills and experience to ensure our learner driver doesn’t become a statistic for NZTA. Getting the supervisor fully involved from the beginning of the learners learning, improve this success. To encourage this TEAM effort, I whole heartedly support the “main supervisor” and encourage them to take an assessment prior to supervising to have an up-to-date understanding of what your learner is learning and also to spot any bad habits of your own so you don’t pass them onto the learner. I can/will then instruct and teach the learner in a quiet area until they are comfortable with controlling the car and build up their confidence before moving on to busier roads.
Restricted licence Holder
Drivers are more likely to be involved in an accident in their first 6 months of driving ‘alone’ due to a combination of inexperience, peer pressure (showing off) and facing high risk situations on their own. Taking lessons with “Car & Code Driving School” your son/daughter will be on the right track to improve their skills, knowledge and gain driving experience in a range of driving conditions, a step in the right direction to becoming a better safer motorist.
Be prepared and ready to pass your NZ driving test and put the NZ Road Code theory into action.
To re-acquaint them with their skills and up skill if necessary (some road rules have changed since they passed their test). Sessions in their car are planned to encourage their confidence and keep them independent and safe behind the wheel.
What happens after booking
Learner /Restricted Licence Holders, Mature Students and Overseas Conversions
The client (driver) will be assessed (40-50minute drive, depending on ability) and given a confidential debrief on strengths/weaknesses and standards required for the Restricted/Full licence test (any extra time not used for assessing will be used for learning). A personal ‘Training Plan’ is then organized by your instructor. Each subsequent session will have a specific ‘Lesson Plan’ depending on objectives and skills to be taught. Time spent and lessons required are subject to the individual’s ability, and additional ‘private’ hours of practice between lessons.
Group Bookings: Clients must organise and agree the split of lessons between themselves. Full fee to be paid prior to first lesson. First session for all clients in group, must be in part, an assessment.
