6 Tips for Driving in New Zealand
- Drive on the left-hand-side of the road.
- Speed limits are 100kmh on the open road and 50kmh in built-up areas. Adjust your speed to suit conditions.
- Double yellow lines indicate that it is too dangerous to overtake.
- Drivers and front- and rear-seat passengers must wear seat belts. Children up to seven years of age must be correctly restrained according to their size and age. Since February 2010, restraints have been classified restraints according to approximate age and seated height rather than the previous weight and age range.
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is strictly prohibited and the ban is enforced by police, with severe penalties for offenders. The legal alcohol limit for drivers 20 years and over is 400mcg for breath and 80mg for blood. It is 0 for younger drivers.
- Signposting follows standard international symbols, with distances measured in kilometres.
