AYM transport guidelines

It is essential that when we are providing transport for young people we do it safely and competently – their lives are valuable! We also have a great opportunity to be modelling safe driving practices to young drivers.

Here’s an example transport permission slip that you could use for your next youth event: AYM-Transport-guidelines

Some suggestions of guidelines for safe driving:

  • Drivers must hold a full NZ driver’s license, be 20 years or older, and have had their full license for 2 years or more.
  • Drivers must adhere to the NZ road code.
  • Drivers must take full responsibility for their own actions.
  • Vehicles must have a current warrant and registration.
  • Drivers must be free from the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Be clear beforehand about who will cover the excess of an insurance policy if there is an accident in a borrowed vehicle.
  • Passengers under the age of 18 must have written consent forms signed by their parent/guardian.
  • All accidents, near misses, or reckless driving must be reported to the event coordinator immediately. This includes, but is not limited to, speeding, fast cornering and tailgating.
  • All passengers must wear seatbelts.
  • There should not be one driver and one young person alone in a car, especially if they are of the opposite sex.
