Dated at Wellington this 30th day of April 2013.
Associate Minister of Transport.
This note is not part of the rule, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This rule, which comes into force on 1 July 2013, amends the Land Transport (Driver Licensing) Rule 1999 in the ways described in Schedule 1. In summary, the changes permit a person who has, for at least 2 years, held a valid car or motorcycle licence issued by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China (Hong Kong) or the Republic of Korea to convert the licence to the equivalent New Zealand driver licence without having to undertake the theory and practical driving tests.
