Welcome to A1 Driving School’s Driving Guides

New Zealand is world renowned for its driving holidays and tourists love nothing more than to rent a car in New Zealand and hit the open road.  Especially in the South Island with its beautiful scenery and winding roads. It can be hazardous however due to things like weather changes, speed limits and road conditions. Also driver fatigue can play a factor. On occasion we New Zealand drivers see tourists taking regular breaks on the side of the road or in urban areas. 

Our driving guides can give you all the information you might need if you’re an international tourist that may not be used to how we drive on the left. Or if you're new to driving and wanting to learn as much as you can, our guides can assist you with driving in New Zealand.  Contact us if your interested in any of our driving courses.
