Land Transport (Driver Licensing) Rule 1999: Recovery Visa Special-type Vehicle Endorsements Class Exemption Notice 2023

Published: | Category: Driver licensing , Class exemptions | Audience: General

Weather events in the North Island in January and February 2023 (especially Cyclone Gabrielle) caused widespread damage in Northern and Eastern regions of the North Island. The purpose of this 12-month class exemption is to support the recovery work by allowing Recovery Visa holders to drive special-type vehicles without requiring those drivers to hold the relevant endorsements or to convert their overseas licence to a New Zealand licence.
