Christchurch Driving Information


 
Driving is on the left side of the road.


 
Christchurch 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).


 
Christchurch Driving Stress Level: 3/10

Driving in and around Christchurch is fairly easy going and does not present any major concerns.


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.
