International driving license for your visit to New Zealand
There's no better way to explore New Zealand than by car
Why carry an IDP while driving in New Zealand?
Your IDP is a valid form of identification in 150 countries worldwide and contains your name, photo and driver information.
It translates your identification information into 12 languages — so it speaks the language even if you don’t. New Zealand highly recommends an International Driving Permit.
