A restricted licence is the second step of the three-stage process to get a full driver licence.
You must be at least 16 ½ years old before you can apply for your restricted licence and have held your learner licence for at least six months.
You’ll need to pass a practical driving test to show that you can drive safely on New Zealand roads.
The best way to prepare is by learning all the skills you need to pass. The more time you spend behind the wheel, the better.
Road crashes are the second greatest cause of death for 16-24-year-olds, and the leading cause of serious injury for young drivers.
Drive Go is designed to help young drivers learn the skills they need to pass their practical driving tests and to develop the right habits for a lifetime of safe driving.
