Drive Safe New Zealand
Driving in New Zealand can be very different to driving at home.
We drive on the left-hand side here, some of our roads are narrow, windy and have loose gravel… and it’s not unusual to see sheep or cattle on roads in rural areas. You need to give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination, and to understand New Zealand road rules and signs.
Even if you have driven in other countries, it’s important to understand our rules for driving in New Zealand before you get behind the wheel here. We’ve put together the key things to consider when planning your trip and as you make your journey around the country. We’ve also suggested some great New Zealand driving routes to help with your planning. Visit the website for more. www.drivesafe.org.nz
