Welcome to month six of your
Behind the Wheel Pledge trip.
We're so glad to hear that there’s a lot of you out there practicing your driving skills and coming along to the Behind the Wheel workshops!
Learning Tip #6
One of the things we all need to learn is parking and where is safe to park.
There are actually a lot of places you can’t park, for instance did you know that you cannot park in front of or closer than 1 metre to a vehicle entrance, like a driveway? Or that you can’t park on, or closer than 500mm to, a fire hydrant, unless somebody who can move the vehicle stays with it?
Make sure you know all the rules around parking so you don’t get caught out next time you’re out with the car! Find out all the rules here. Or if you're keen to practice parking here are some helpful videos.
When you’re practicing you need to make sure you always have your licence with you and follow the rules of your licence.
If you’re on your Learner licence now you must always drive with a supervisor.
Your supervisor is in charge of the vehicle and must:
hold a current and valid full New Zealand licence (which does not have a supervisor condition) for the same class of vehicle you’re learning to drive
have held their New Zealand full licence (or an equivalent overseas licence) for at least two years
sit in the passenger seat next to you at all times when you are driving carry their driver licence with them.
