Auckland Driving Test FAQs
- Choosing Your Auckland Driving Test Centre
If you want to book Westgate to sit you test you need to put MASSEY in your location, not AUCKLAND. You will need to book in advance to get the time and day you prefer. Mid morning and school holidays usually means less traffic on Auckland roads.
- You can change your booking online with no charge
As long as you give two full working days notice. If you go to a service agency (AA, VTNZ, VINZ) you will be charged a fee for changing bookings. Once you have booked your test online, you still need to visit an NZTA agency to complete the test booking procedure, i.e. photo and eyesight check and sign another form, DL1.
- Remember to bring proof of your address and either your learner or restricted licence
It is recommended you do this before the day of your test, so that once you pass the practical test, the Testing Officer can immediately issue your temporary license. The plastic license will arrive in the post around 1 week later. FYI, the agencies AA, VINZ and VTNZ are under contract to NZTA to provide office and computer support, theory tests and book practical tests, they do not carry out practical tests. On the day of your practical driving test remember to bring you license and you need to provide a car. The car must be road worthy including current WOF, registration, with all lights and wipers working, tyres' checked and clean and tidy interior. If not, your test will be failed and you will have to pay to re-sit your test.
