Extension of overseas driver licences (Factsheet 81)

Published: | Category: Driver licensing , Factsheets

Due to the closure of international borders as a result of COVID-19, many people on overseas licences are unable to leave New Zealand and are fast approaching the end of their 12-month period of being able to drive on their overseas licence. Because of this, the rules around the eligibility period for driving in New Zealand on an overseas driver licence have been temporarily changed. The temporary extended period for driving on an overseas licence is up to a maximum of 24 months after arrival and will expire on 31 March 2022. At that time the eligibility period will then revert to 12 months. Read this information in our driver licensing section
