Book a practical driver licence test

Important note:

April 2015: Drivers in some regions are currently having to wait longer than normal before being able to sit a restricted or full practical driver test. The Transport Agency apologises for any inconvenience or additional stress this is causing.
We are working very closely with the testing provider to increase the number of tests that are available - including having testing officers work overtime and moving testing officers to areas with higher demand.
We recommend that you book the first available test at your preferred test site as shown in the booking system. If you need a test sooner than what is available, check this website regularly as tests do become available due to cancellations.

Before you start you will need:
  • your current New Zealand driver licence
  • a Visa/Mastercard credit or debit card or your internet banking details (POLi) .
Tests you can book online are:
  • restricted tests
  • full tests
  • older driver tests (for drivers aged 80, 82, 84 etc).
Tests that can only be booked at a driver licensing agent are:
  • tests for P, V or I endorsements
  • overseas driver licence conversions
  • learner licence tests
  • requalifications
  • reinstatements.
Cancelling or changing a test

Another test fee is payable if you change or cancel your test appointment within two working days of the test date. (The two working day period excludes weekends, public holidays, the day of the test and the day you make the change).
