    Anther question.
    We battling to get license in SA for our 18 yr old - you wont believe the ques on the one and only day of the month that you can book- just as you get to top of the que either our power goes off or computer goes off line. Enough of that... but can anyone tell me what would be required for him to do his license in NZ when we get there - costs etc

    Tks a million

    Just like to say thanks to Ian and Dave for the info. I have been sweating it about taking the theory test - and not wanting to pay for it since I'd only use the licence for a few weeks. Decided to log in here today, so now I know I've reset my time limit by going back to the UK for a month Still, I know the NZ Road Code really well!

    BTW it's not only the test centres that don't know the facts; I was told by a police officer that I would need to take a practical test as well. Worrying...

    It does in fact say this on the back of the paper licence.

    I would think they would follow Oz a bit, as I won't have to take one when we get there...just have to show my license and I getone of theirs
