Stellar Driver Training

General Information

Overview
Providing quality driver training for car drivers in west Christchurch and east Selwyn. Learn to drive, check your driving is test-ready, or enrol in a Defensive Driving Course.
Notes for card holders

We offer 10% off public advertised fees.

Carers are welcome to attend DDC with their charge, no cost. They will be welcome to achieve the qualification themselves for a payment of $100 (course is $175 normally) to cover materials and an individual driving lesson they will need themselves, in order to qualify. This is not required to attend with a charge for their care, an option only if they wish to achieve the DDC themselves.

Accessing Visual Information

We can talk through paperwork that we complete in driving lessons, and for Defensive Driving Courses we will assist in any way possible, eg showing you video clips before your session and talking through what is happening in them, so that when they are shown in class you recognize them and what is going on, to participate in class discussions. While PowerPoint is used in classroom, all information is also provided verbally.
Accessing Audible Information
