About the Auckland Defensive Driving Academy - Defensive Driving Specialists

With 7 locations around Auckland, we are sure to have a venue handy to you. Auckland Defensive Driving Academy (ADDA) has been running the best value courses in Auckland since 2003. We are unique as we are not a Driving School that runs Defensive Driving Courses on the side. We specialise in providing quality Defensive Driving Courses.

DECEMBER 9th COVID UPDATE. As we enter the "traffic light" phase of the fight against Covid, we have started facilitating courses again in all areas. 

We are insisting that your Covid vaccination pass be presented before joining any course and a mask is compulsory for all attendees. We will be adherring to all government protocols. (NO JAB NO COURSE). 

With NZTA having to rebook 3 months of Driving Tests and everyone wanting their Full Licence for the Holiday Season, the waiting time for a drive will get lengthy. We strongly recommend that, providing you are 17.5 years old, that you book ahead for the day your 12 months are up to maximise the use of your certificate.

Why do our Defensive Driving Course?

The Defensive Driving Course (DDC) has been improving the standard of drivers for 50 years. Restricted Licence holders are constrained as they are legally not permitted to carry younger siblings to school, drive between 10pm & 5am and are unable to transport friends & family to school and sports events.

Breaching these conditions nullifies insurance and risks fines and demerits making the cost of a defensive driving course seem minimal. Your certificate of completion slashes up to 6 months off 1R time.
