What will I need to do this lessons?


You will require a minimum of a Learners Licence to learn to drive a car on NZ roads

To be able to drive this class of vehicle, there are three stages that you must progress through. 

This is known as the "Graduated Driver Licence System"

The three stages are:

1. Learners Licence:

  • You must be at least 16 years of age

2. Restricted Licence:

  • You must have held your Learners Licence 6 months before you can apply for your restriced licence

3. Full Licence:

  • You must have held your Restricted Licence if under 25 for 18 months, this can be reduced to 12 months if you take a Street Talk Course once you have held your Restricted for 6 months. Over 25 then you must hold your Restricted Licence for 6 months, reducable to 3 if you take a Street Talk Course. You can do the course immediately you receive your Restricted Licence.
