Have Driving Licence, Have Opportunities!
We all know the benefits of having a driver licence – job opportunities, road safety, independence and living within the law. But what many older people don’t realise is that getting a driver’s licence is much harder now than it was twenty or thirty years ago.
Drive 4 Life was first introduced in 2007 as a safe driving programme with presentations and testimonials from young people whose lives have been impacted by driving accidents. Today over 800 young people have graduated from Drive4Life with their learner driving licence.
Since 2013 Partners Porirua has worked in partnership with NZ Transport Agency, the AA and Caltex to deliver a Community Driver Mentor Programme enabling disadvantaged youth to practise their driving skills with fully licensed adult driving mentors. The mentors are trained to act as driving coaches, supervising a range of driving experiences and fostering positive habits leading to safer drivers on our roads and in communities.
