How to get your learner-licence

Getting your Learner Licence is the first step to getting your driver licence in New Zealand. To get your Learner Licence, you will have to learn the New Zealand Road Code, be 16 years or older, and pass a theory test to show you understand the rules for driving safely in New Zealand.

The theory test has 35 multi-choice questions, must be completed in 30 minutes, and is taken on a computer at your local VTNZ or AA Centre. You will need to get 32 questions right to pass, so it’s important to read and understand the New Zealand Road Code, as well as practice answering test questions.

If you pass the theory test, you will be given a temporary Learner Licence so you can start practicing to drive, and your photo driver licence will be posted to you.

We can help you prepare for the Learner Licence theory test by providing a space to study the New Zealand Road Code and desktop computers to practice answering tricky test questions.
