Driving in New Zealand as a tourist or visitor

If you are moving to New Zealand, coming on holiday or coming to study, we have information for driving on a foreign licence here.

Try our tourist and visitor driving quiz to ensure you understand the essential Road Code knowledge that might be different to the country you are from. This is particularly useful if you have never driven on the left. You will find many differences in New Zealand's signs and road markings if you are from Europe, Asia or the Americas. The quiz augments NZTA's excellent booklet "What's Different About Driving in New Zealand", adding more depth.
