How does Driving Miss Daisy work?
We offer much more than a transport service – we’ll collect you from your door, drive you to your destination and provide whatever help is needed before delivering you safely home again. All drivers are vetted by the NZ Police, first aid trained and hold a Passenger Licence with NZ Transport Agency, giving you, and your family, peace of mind.

Driving Miss Daisy is perfect for:
• ACC-related transport (work/rehab/physio, etc.)
• Medical and personal appointments
• Social engagements
• Grocery or other shopping trips
• Airport/bus/rail departures or pick ups
• Outings or appointments with your furry friends
• Mobility transport for clients in wheelchairs - after hours and weekends included

Who uses Driving Miss Daisy?
• Older people who want to maintain their independence
• Parents who require help delivering children to/from after school activities
• Organisations who need to coordinate people to/from appointments
• People who don’t drive

How much does Driving Miss Daisy cost?
We are considered to be affordable and extremely cost effective. We accept Total Mobility cards for your convenience. You may wish to take advantage of our Loyalty cards and popular Gift Vouchers.
Pre-booking is essential so please phone me to discuss your requirements or make a booking.

I have been using Driving Miss Daisy services due to an unfortunate accident to my right arm making me incapable of driving for 8 weeks. Corlize and Helena have been a real pleasure to deal with and have done everything in their power to help me and my family, dropping my kids to school and kindergarten 3 days a week. My daughter was even surprised on her eighth birthday with some lovely balloons and chocolates which made her day. My experience with them has been awesome and I would recommend them to anyone.
Thanks, Jason Paver

Dear Corlize, Mum absolutely loves her outings. It is the comments that come our way after her trips that reflect the fact that she has not only enjoyed the trip, but also has stimulated her into describing and talking about what she has seen and where she has been.
Thank you so much for making our lives less stressful.
Pat and I have always tried to do our best with keeping very much in touch with Mum and she gets lots of visits, but having Driving Miss Daisy North Bays on board is the icing on the cake. The fact that we can rely on you girls, to give Mum her weekly outing means so much to all of us, not just Mum. Well done team DMD North Bays, look forward to our continued togetherness.
Kind regards. Dianne and Pat.

To whom it may concern, I came across Driving Miss Daisy when I started taking my wife who has dementia to the Totara Club at Windsor Park.
Now I can go to bowls on Tuesdays fully confident that she will be collected from inside our home and returned into it by a wonderfully cheerful, caring person. What a wonderful service Corlize and crew provide!
I do highly recommend them.
Kind regards, Mark Tasker

Hi Corlize
I’d like to thank you for your kind attention to Mum during her outings with you. Mum finds it hard to do much as she gets older (now ninety three) and her weekly and monthly trips are something she looks forward to and enjoys a lot. Her being able to get out a bit with you and Driving Miss Daisy is a real plus to the times I take her out, and means that Mum is not solely dependent on me for a change of scene.
Kind regards, Mark Adams.

Hi Corlize
The service you provide with Driving Miss Daisy is fantastic for my elderly mother and gives her an opportunity to get a couple of outings a week that she would otherwise not be able to get. At 95 years of age Mum is no longer able to drive, or mobile enough to get around and so it is wonderful to know that we have a reliable and caring option for her twice weekly trips out. She loves the camaraderie and friendship and it is so easy for her to get in and out of your vehicles and works beautifully that you can take the wheelchair with you in case it is needed.
We have been using the Driving Miss Daisy service for over 6 years now and it has progressed with Mum from taking her to do her shopping and appointments to being an interesting outing now that she is in full hospital care. Mum looks forward to every outing and they have become the highlight of her week and a great conversation piece when she has visitors. We have used you also to bring Mum to and from two of our family weddings which has been less stress for both her and on us.
We are very grateful to you and your team for what you do for Mum and truly wouldn’t be without this service.
Kind regards. Sue Stanaway
