    Post Truck test on a visitor visa ?

    Hi all,
    Does anyone know the legalities of applying for a Truck licence and taking a test when in NZ on a visitor visa ? I know I need a NZ driving licence, but I gather this is straightforward to get when on a visitor visa.
    Thank you

    Bob

    I have no idea how easy it is to get a truck licence in NZ, but I am confident it will be the same as for a kiwi. (As long as you get your NZ licence, which is quick and easy if you have a UK one). Maybe they'll even convert the categories?!? You would think drivers would need more re-training for an HGV though.

    Theory test required then, but no practical test (assuming you've had it for more than 2 years)

    Yes Jackobob said he was from UK (in another post) so I assumed.
