Teach a former refugee to drive
Every year New Zealand welcomes former refugees into our communities. Many have endured significant hardship and now face the huge task of starting their life afresh.
Those who don't have a driver's licence have extra challenges: simply getting around, attending job interviews, appointments or taking children to school.
Supporting a former refugee learn to drive is a practical way of helping them settle in their new country.
As a volunteer, you will be given full training and the use of a dual-controlled car.

All volunteers are trained and supported to feel confident to teach their learner to drive.
This programme cannot run without the amazing support from our volunteer driving mentors. We are always looking for volunteers willing to support a former refugee with driving coaching and practice.
