Youthtown is running a Learners Licence Programme that is a 6-week course that will help young people 16 years and over get their Learners Driving Licence.

The course comprises of 4 weeks of interactive teaching from the NZTA Road Code, followed by bringing students into their local AA for booking and testing in weeks 5 & 6. The cost of the programme is $130.00 which includes the student’s test fee of $93.90 – this means it costs $36.10 for 4 weeks of tutoring!

We run our public courses out of libraries and other public spaces, and the nearest course to Cashmere is our Turanga Library course. We’ll be running this course once a week on Thursdays from 4pm-5:30pm at Turanga Library during weeks 3-8 of Term 1, with the start date being 14th February.

The requirements to join the course are that the student is 16 years or over, and will be required to provide certain official documents of identification for them to be able to book in for their test. The NZTA are very specific on the forms of ID’s that are accepted, so make sure you jump on the NZTA website and know what they require.

You can find the courses and more information on our website:
