BREAKING NEWS !!! We have a brand new VW Polo automatic available for car driving lessons.

As the new Restricted and Full Driving Tests are much harder to pass, some lessons will help prepare you for the Test.

If you think you are ready to sit your Drivers licence then now is the time to have an assessment drive with us in your vehicle. As this is the vehicle you feel most comfortable in.

As both Roger & Robyn have previous experience as Testing Officers they know the required standard to pass your test .

Have an assessment drive with us prior to either your Restricted or Full licence test. We can give you tips and advice on what’s required.

Also if you want lessons in our Automatic car they are $75 for an hour lesson. If you wish to use your own car $65.

If you are driving a taxi with a meter installed, the driver must hold an Area Knowledge Certificate for the area they are operating in. We offer the approved NZ Transport Agency test for Hamilton City.

You must have a good understanding of the English language and a good knowledge of the area (Hamilton City). 




We offer the new Defensive Driving Course for the Experienced Driver which has been designed solely for the Experienced Driver.

We offer great packages and you have the choice of selecting which package suits your business needs. The course is based on Risk Management and reduction. A key element is recognition of driver attitudes and behaviours, fatigue, stress and emotions, road rage, incidents and the relationship between drink / drugs and driving.

The course has the offer of theory only which is 4 hours in total or the combination of theory and practical assessment. We would strongly suggest the combination package, as a full written report is completed.

The following prices are based on the training being held in your premises.

Course Fees:
- Theory only. $190 pp plus GST.
- Theory plus practical. $240 pp plus GST. In your own company vehicle.
