Auckland Dam Update

Victoria from Torbay - Long Bay

Auckland's dam levels are the highest they have been for several years. Another wet evening has lifted them even further.

A decision is expected on Thursday regarding the lifting of our water restrictions. Hoping to bring back the kiwi tradition of the sprinkler under the trampoline this summer - the kids favourite :)

Driving lessons checklist for parents wanting to teach their children how to drive

Steve from Albany

After many years of driving instructing I am now offering parents the tools to use to get your child up to VTNZ test standard, most parents do a great job of teaching their child to drive but just need those extra tips to get them up to test standard level. For a nominal fee of $20 I can supply the same checklist PDF and also another PDF about roundabout procedures that I have used with a 95% pass rate, it will be emailed to you along with a follow up phone call. I used to own one of Auckland's top driving schools, semi retired now.

Please Note: I am no longer taking people out in a car now with this covid lurking around, this decision is for the safety of all as sitting close to each other in a car for 1 hour is risky. I have decided to try a new strategy out now so parents can get their child up to test standard with my years of experience developed in the "Checklist for Driving lessons" that is so easy to follow, it also is what the testing people at VTNZ are looking for.
