Accelerate involves a cohort of up to 75 Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT) Trades and Hospitality students receiving three free driving lessons with an AA driving instructor. In addition, AA Driving School trained four MIT staff members to facilitate the Defensive Driving Course, which can reduce the time it takes to get a full licence by six months.
“We want to help students on their driver training journey, so they’re not held back from getting a job simply because they don’t have a licence.”
- AA Driving School General Manager Roger Venn
Finally, the AA will provide one year free AA Membership to each Accelerate participant who obtains their full licence by the end of June 2019.
