Y•Drive Driving School

Y•Drive Driving School is our social enterprise that provides driver education and licence support for people seeking to attain their Learner, Restricted or Full New Zealand driver licence. We operate in Ashburton, Timaru and Oamaru and surrounding areas.

We do this by offering competitively priced driving lessons to enable drivers to progress through learner or restricted Class 1 licence or their full licence.

To support people needing on-the-road driving practice, but who may not have ready access to a car or someone to drive with them, we have partnered with the Salvation Army to match them with trained and qualified driving mentors through the Community Driving Mentor Programme.

We also work with trusted partners who provide referrals to our philanthropically-funded Community Driving Scholarship Programme, to help overcome the obstacle that financial constraint can pose for disadvantaged people seeking to attain their driver licence.
