 Drivers Seat concept

The concept of AA Driver's Seat / AA Te Kaiurungi

Our Te Reo Māori name 'Te Kaiurungi' draws its meaning from being a navigator or coxswain of a waka. It can also be used to describe the person who is in control of the vehicle.

Our professional driving instructors will guide you with the driver training you need to pass your driving tests, be a safe driver, and become the navigator of your journey. Get in the Driver's Seat with AA Driving School.
