Warkworth Driving Academy lessons cover the wider Warkworth area as well as covering the Silverdale/Orewa practical licence test area. We have a manual car and an automatic car, both with dual control pedals. We can use your car or ours for lessons – you choose!

No need to travel far as lessons start from Warkworth New World or your work, school or home within the Warkworth township area. We can also come to you outside of Warkworth, including Wellsford, by arrangement. This may incur an extra charge - check with us for details.
