A full resident country driver license must be presented at collection of the vehicle for each nominated driver. If the license is not in an English format, an international driver’s license is also required, or an accurate translation.
The translation must be provided by:
- a NZ Transport Agency authorised translation service, or
- a diplomatic representative at a high commission, embassy or consulate, or
- the authority that issued your overseas licence.
Your overseas drivers licence must be current and valid. This means that your licence must not be suspended, expired or revoked from your country of issue. For more detailed information, please go the the New Zealand Transport Authority website (www.nzta.govt.nz)
