Social Driving Academy
Social Driving Academy is a social enterprise committed to helping ALL kiwis through the driver licencing system, keeping our roads safe and towards better communities.
As a social enterprise, our primary purpose is to do good and benefit society. Considering most jobs require a drivers licence, not having one is a barrier to employment, economic productivity and social integration for many.
As part of our commitment towards safer roads and better communities, a part of all profits is dedicated towards helping disadvantaged individuals with driver training and licencing. Last year, we helped 8 former refugees towards their restricted and full licences by volunteering $2535 in free driving lessons and mock tests. Each lesson you do with us contributes towards helping us help others get road legal.
In addition, we work with the NZ Red Cross on their Open Road driver training program. Open Road aims to help former refugees gain independence and towards securing employment by helping them with their driver licencing. The program is always looking for volunteers so check out their website to volunteer!
We also work with Holden on their Street Smart driver training program. Street Smart is a program designed to get young drivers ready for life on our kiwi roads. Check out their website to register for a day of fun on some of the best racetracks we have in NZ and to learn how to be a safer driver.
