Auckland Driving Information


 
Driving is on the left side of the road.


 
Auckland Airport rental cars may be either automatic OR manual transmission. Make sure to verify when booking if you are not comfortable with a manual transmission.


 
Your local drivers' licence is required.


An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).


 
Auckland Driving Stress Level: 5/10

If you wish to travel outside of Auckland, be sure that your Car rental Auckland Airport package includes unlimited mileage. One-way rentals are often possible with the biggest companies, where you are able to drive outside of Auckland and eventually leave your car at another town or city, such as Christchurch, on the South Island. However, surcharges may be made for this feature, depending upon the overall rental period.


Driving within the city is a useful way to get around and rarely problematic, although rush hours are best avoided. However, parking spaces can be difficult to find within the inner city, making park and ride a popular option. On-street parking is also available around Auckland, operating on a 'pay and display' ticket basis.


Be aware of the 'right-hand' rule that requires drivers to give way or yield to turning traffic on their right when they are making a turn. This rule is exclusive to New Zealand and will be explained by the rental agent. This rule is currently under review, so please make sure to ask when you pick up your car. The red car below has priority when turning.
