These training sessions and courses are for drivers of all levels including young drivers and motorcycle riders. We’ve partnered up with Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, Waikato District Council, Waipa District Council and some other key partners to help fund these courses.

Each course supports Council’s Vision Zero target, that means we will not accept any deaths or serious injuries on our roads. They also align with Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Road to Zero strategy.
