Restricted Licence

First things first! Our restricted program is NOT designed to teach people how to drive, instead it’s designed to make sure you are prepared enough to pass your restricted licence test.

We are able to provide an automatic vehicle free of use for anyone wanting to sit their test in an automatic. Anyone wanting to sit their test on a manual will need to provide their own warranted, registered manual vehicle. RUC must also be up to date if applicable. We are able to book your test on your behalf and transport you to Te Awamutu or Taumarunui for your test.

It is important for your safety, the safety of our instructors and other road users that you do not attend any scheduled appointments under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
