Driving in New Zealand

What should you know before driving in New Zealand?

If you're used to driving in the city, you should take care when driving on New Zealand's open country roads. We have a good motorway system but weather extremes, the terrain and narrow secondary roads and bridges require drivers to be very vigilant

DriveSafe 
www.driveSafe.org.nz provides basic information about New Zealand road rules and etiquette, along with links to more details about everything that drivers unfamiliar with our roads need to know. It offers valuable guidance to visiting drivers before arrival, when picking up a vehicle and driving around New Zealand.
