Successful driver education students who all passed their learner licence test after taking part in the driver education programme

Driver mentors needed

by Jill Dickie

The Te Roroa Learning Assistance driver education programme needs volunteers to work as driver mentors for students for a minimum of two hours each week.

Volunteers must have held a full car licence for more than two years, be more than 25 years of age and pass a police security check. They will also need to attend mentoring and driving training sessions.

The driver education programme provides assistance for learner drivers, restricted driver mentoring and full licence assessments.

“It’s a hugely beneficial programme, and having the mentors helping ensures the students pass their tests,” said Te Roroa Learning Assistance manager, Janet Te Rore. Other training programmes are also available from Te Roroa Learning Assistance, such as a computing course to give more people ready access to the internet through the use of a Chromebook and a foundation skills course teaching how to create an effective CV,
budgeting, time management and goal setting.

From Monday, March 10, Te Roroa is operating from 122 Victoria Street, Dargaville, and all contact details will remain the same.
