Full Services For Code 1st Driving School

With NZTA Approved Driving Instructor

At Code 1st Driving School, we offer driving lessons for people of all age groups (including seniors) and driving abilities who already have their Learners Licence. It is recommended that learner drivers have 120 hours of supervised driving practise before they apply for their restricted licence. The more driving practice you get in, the more confident driver you will become. Another thing you can do is log all the hours you drive with a supervisor, including the driving lessons you have with your driving instructor. You can print off a log form from the NZTA website, click on: Learner Drivers Log Form.
