New AA Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency opens in Upper Hutt

Upper Hutt locals have a brand new home for a raft of licensing services as the latest AA Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency opens its doors this week.

Located at Cannon Point Motor, 68 Montgomery Crescent, customers can visit the Agency for all their driver and vehicle licensing requirements, including theory tests for learners, licence renewals and International Driving Permits (IDPs).

VTNZ will be offering practical driver testing at the same facility from October 4 with online bookings opening closer to this date.

AA National Manager Government Contracts Sheelah Ranson says she’s thrilled to see these services welcomed to Upper Hutt.

“We are very excited to see this Agency open for business. Upper Hutt locals can be assured they will be met with the professional and friendly service the AA prides itself on. The Agency is run by a fantastic team of people who are looking forward to serving their community for all their licensing needs and more.”

In addition, customers can also access IRD personal number applications, RealMe services and join the AA or renew their AA Membership at the Agency.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Senior Manager Vehicle and Driver Licensing, Sue Hardiman, said Waka Kotahi was currently looking at ways to reduce the barriers for people to make driver licensing access more equitable for everyone who wants or needs a licence.

“The re-introduction of driver testing in Upper Hutt reflects our desire to increase access to driver licensing.

“We’ve heard the message from a range of community groups and leaders that driver licensing is an important service and we’re very pleased to provide Upper Hutt with a local service through our VTNZ and AA partners.”
