New Zealand Drivers License Requirements

You can legally drive in New Zealand for up to 12 months if you have either a current driver's licence from your home country or an International Driving Permit (IDP). After 12 months you are required to convert to a New Zealand licence. This applies to each visit to New Zealand.

In New Zealand all drivers, including visitors from other countries, must carry their licence or permit at all times when driving. You will only be able to drive the same types of vehicles you are licensed to drive in your home country. It is important that your driving licence clearly shows you are licensed to drive a motorcycle if you are renting a motorbike or touring with us.

Make sure your driver's licence is current. If your licence is not in English, you must bring an English translation with you or obtain an international driving permit from your country of residence.

It is important to note that if you are caught driving without an acceptable English translation or an international driving permit, you may be prosecuted for driving unlicensed or for driving without an appropriate licence and will be liable for an infringement fee of NZ$400 or up to NZ$1,000 on conviction in court.

The Police also have the power to forbid an unlicensed driver to drive until they have an appropriate licence. If you continue to drive after being forbidden, the vehicle you are driving will be impounded for 28 days, at the vehicle owner's expense. You may also risk not being covered by your insurance in the event of a crash.

Let us know any questions about your license when you contact us to book and we can assist with translations of licenses if required.
