Funding for Driver Licensing Training

Hawke’s Bay Regional Council has a limited amount of funding available to assist community organisations with the provision of driver licence training. The New Zealand Transport Agency is providing 75% of the available funding and the remaining 25% comes from Hawke’s Bay Regional Council and other stakeholder organisations in Hawke’s Bay.

By investing in the provision of driver licence programmes in Hawke’s Bay, we aim to:

  • Reduce the crash rate and risk of crashes caused by unlicensed and partially licensed drivers.
  • Improve employment prospects for those seeking work, through achieving a driver’s licence.
  • Reduce the number of people in the justice system because of driver licence infringements.

Applications from community groups

Interested community groups can apply for the funding over two financial years commencing 1 July 2016 and 1 July 2017, and applications close 15 July 2016.  Funds will only be paid to not-for-profit organisations, such as trusts and incorporated societies.
