Our friendly team of trainers are highly experienced and are passionate about delivering quality training – meet our team below. We also have our own heavy vehicles and machinery so you don’t need to worry about any additional hire costs.

Please see our available course dates – you can book via phone, email or online booking form.

The Christchurch branch of Mainland Driving School is based at 105 Hayton Road in Wigram, easily accessible from SH73 & 75. We have a great, newly-refurbished facility with plenty of on-site parking.

If you can’t make it into the branch, no problem – we can also run courses at your own workplace, anywhere between Christchurch and Kaikoura or the West Coast or down to the Rakaia. Contact our team today to find out more (please note minimum numbers apply).
