It can be difficult to adjust to life after driving, but there are ways you can stay mobile or get support if you need it.
If you’re 65 or over, a SuperGold card or the Total Mobility Scheme may help make using public transport easier for you. You could also consider carpooling.
Getting a mobility scooter might be an option for you. Make sure you read about how to keep safe on a mobility scooter.
Talk to your local regional council, local social services or support groups like Age Concern (if you’re a senior citizen). They can give you more information and ideas about how you can get support.
If your driver licence was your only form of identification, you could apply for a Kiwi Access card from the Ministry of Social Development.
If you have a SuperGold card, you could consider getting your photo put on it.
