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 practises 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 drivers licence, 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 co-ordinator 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
