Young drivers

Learning to drive is an important life skill for young people.

However, it's a sad fact that all over the world young drivers have a high crash rate when they first start driving on their own.

New Zealand has a poor record of young people being hurt and killed and the AA is working in numerous ways to improve the skills and safety of young drivers.
