Learning Tip #2
Our top tip is to create a weekly plan of how much money you can save towards your licence fee!
That way you will know how many weeks you have until you can afford to apply for the test. So for example, if you can put aside $15.00 per week it will take you 7 weeks to have enough money for your learners licence fees. Sorted has a great savings calculator which could help you work out how much to put aside.
There are lots of different ways you could make some money:
- you could go busking
- or mow lawns for friends and family
- get a part time job
- save up your allowance
- or look on the local community notice board for odd jobs!
Get creative and have a think about how you’ll reach your goal.
Thanks again for committing to making the streets of Māngere a safer place!
Good luck with progressing with your licence this month!
