Driving in New Zealand

There are a few things that you may not be used to when driving in New Zealand. For example:

•          we drive on the left side of the road

•          it's easy to underestimate travelling times here

•          our roads are steeper, narrower and more winding than you might expect

•          our roads are mostly two-way, with one lane in each direction - we have few

Make sure you have a safe and enjoyable journey. You can download a Driving in New Zealand
leaflet for information on the key road rules - available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Arabic.
