Driving in New Zealand
New Zealand’s diverse terrain means roads are often narrow, steep and winding with lots of
sharp corners.
Plan your journeys with care, take into account rural or isolated areas and weather
conditions that could affect your driving. Always check the weather before you set off;
particularly during winter when driving becomes more difficult with snow, ice and fog.
Be aware that New Zealand’s rail road crossings are not all automatic. Most will flash lights
when a train is approaching, but some just include stop signs. When you see this, make sure
to stop, check both directions, and only cross when you are sure it is safe.
The maximum speed limit on roads (including motorways) is 100 km/h and 50 km/h in urban
areas. In school zones the maximum speed limit is 40 km/h.
