Getting your licence

If you need to know the process to go through to get your learner licence, click here. With a car licence you will start by taking the theory test, but with a motorbike licence you will need to do a basic handling skills test first. Then you can find a qualified driving instructor to help you learn how to drive safely.

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 booklet "What's Different About Driving in New Zealand", adding more depth.

What our users say

  • We have a 100% pass rate for our learner-clients for all classes. Some are not able to come in and do in-house training for the theory section, so we have given them your site address and instructions on how to make best use of the resource. Your site has been and is of great help to road code learners of all classes of vehicles.

  • As a resource for aspiring motorcyclists wanting to prepare for their theory assessment, we have found the online sample tests available from drivingtests.co.nz to be invaluable. To be honest we have yet to have someone fail who has prepared using these free online test questions. Great stuff!
