While New Zealand isn't a large country, and often traffic is light, you do need to know the rules in order to drive safely.  Some differences are obvious;

  • We drive on the left.
  • Distances are in kilometres not miles.
  • Not all roads are sealed.
  • Many bridges are one lane only, you need to know who has right of way.

Take a few minutes to download and the the two leaflets 'Driving In NZ' and 'Whats Different About Driving in NZ', they contain a wealth of information to help you stay safe and keep on the right side of the law.

  • Ride Smart. Read the Road - Video at bottom of page.

And remember;

  • Motorcyclists are required to wear a safety helmet at all times.
  • Motorcycles must keep their headlight on 'dipped' at all times during daylight hours.

Check out the two videos below, lots of useful information :-)
