Learn to drive with AA Driving School

Book in advance

Our popular AA Driving Instructors are often busy so book in advance for your driving lesson to avoid disappointment!

Learning to drive is one of the most exciting milestones in your life. Getting behind the wheel means the freedom to live on your terms and by your timetable.

Booking driving lessons with the AA is the smart choice if you want to be in that driving seat as soon as possible. We've been teaching New Zealanders how to drive for over 50 years.

There’s no quicker, more certain way to learn the rules of the road than with a qualified AA Driver Training Instructor.  Our trainers know how to get the best from you. They’ll help you feel at ease in the driving seat so you can pass your test with confidence. 

And, with our nationwide network, we’re bound to have a trainer close to you. 

We recommend that you take a series of driving lessons with an AA Driving Instructor.  Our experience shows that a single lesson before a test is unlikely to provide you with the skills and confidence necessary to pass the test.


About our driving lessons

AA Driving Lessons

One of our qualified friendly and patient trainers will pick you up from home or school. It’s much easier and less stressful than learning with a friend or family member.

You’ll learn to drive in a modern dual-controlled car – it’ll make you feel safe and comfortable while you’re starting to learn on-road skills for New Zealand's unique conditions.

The theory you need to learn is incorporated into practical training while you’re in the car. We'll chart your progress with our key driving skills card. It's a blueprint that helps us identify your driving progress and needs. It will hardly feel like a lesson!

AA Driving School is leading the way in road safety! Our Driving School cars now have security cameras installed. This ensures that our learner drivers are in the safest hands possible. We're committed to improving industry standards and delivering a quality service.
