Learning to drive is a risky business. In fact road crashes are one of the leading causes of death and serious injury for young people.

Driver Directions is a FREE day long driving event to help young drivers from the Taupo and Rotorua Districts develop their skills in a safe off-road environment under the watchful eye of their parent/caregiver.

Driver Directions supports young drivers and their parents to undertake supervised driving practice

The focus is on developing good decision-making strategies and vital skills for safe driving including:

Assessing themselves

Reading the road environment

Resisting peer pressure

Managing distractions

Planning ahead

Criteria
The programme is for young drivers who hold a Learner or Restricted Licence. Participants must provide their own vehicle with current WOF and REGO and be accompanied by a parent or caregiver
