    Default NZ driver license theory test

    Is it enough to prepare from this online practice test (http://www.aa.co.nz/drivers/driving-...oad-code-quiz/) + questions list in road code or do we need to read the entire road code book and get information from other sources too?

    Thanks.

    Don't know the online quiz you are referring but in the interest of us all it is a good idea to read the entire road code. Some time ago the actual hard copy of the code contained all possible questions in its end. You might want to study these at least.

    My son used the practice questions you've linked to -- if you repeat them until you're routinely scoring above the passmark, that should suffice.

    I have read and know answers to all of the questions at the end of road code. I have also read the entire book but the reason for asking this is if there are any trick questions involved or that might not be there in book and practice test. Also in the book there are a lot of figures given e.g. the max weight of tractor if driving on full license, these things are hard to memorize and meaningless to me and neither asked in the questions list in book or practice exams.

    I am scoring 10/10 in all of those practice tests so i guess I'm safe for the test and the roads too

    Thanks.

    If you read the entire road code + do the practice questions (they are very important) which comes with the accompanying book, that would be enough to pass the theory test. All the questions that will be asked will be exactly the same as the questions in the practice, there is no deviation and no trick questions to stump you. The only thing is to remember the answers (or memorise them as you said). There is a time limit though for the test but most people complete it in 20 mins.

    Thanks. You only need to read and practice the road code guide and questions given at the end of that book. They sell official practice tests only to make extra money. AA's free online practice tests are sufficient if you want to practice answering questions based on information given in road code guide.
