Puketapapa Community Driving School is a full-service, community-owned social enterprise dedicated to make driver training and simulated testing more accessible and affordable for youth, women, migrants and former refugees.
In December 2017 the PETER Collective, a group of local organisations working together in Puketapapa to improve education, training and employment outcomes established the driving school as a social enterprise. Migrant Action Trust (MAT) became the lead organisation managing the community driving school, with partners RULE Education, UMMA Trust, Wesley Community Centre and Aotearoa Resettled Community Coalition (ARCC).
We continuously explore and develop the social enterprise’s operational capacity to cater for the 200+ in the waitlist in becoming confident and safer drivers around the community.
