Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Getting a driver's licence oz or nz - how much + legal req.?

Hi,

can anybody tell me how much it costs to get a driver's licence in Oz or NZ if I'm staying there on a WHV? Is getting one easy or impossible for me?

I've been dreaming about going, but I also need a driver's licence very badly. I don't have one yet. I would have to invest around 1200 EUR into getting it in Germany, money I would rather use for my flight down under.

Please help.

hi there,
both NZ and Aus run the graduated drivers license schemes, to gain a full unconditional lisence can take up to 2 years.
All the costs for taking the tests are avaliable on the transport websites, remember to add the cost of lessons.
good luck

Thanks for your answer. I didn't know what a graduated drivers license scheme was, so I did a search on google. Looks like I would be happy to have a P1 licence.

Jase, that was my question: how much for those?
