Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 November 2013, amend the Land Transport (Driver Licensing and Driver Testing Fees) Regulations 1999.

The regulations provide that the fee payable by the chief executive of the Ministry of Justice to the New Zealand Transport Agency (the Agency) for replacing a photographic driver licence is $38.20. This is payable when the Agency replaces a licence following the cancellation or termination of a driver licence stop order. The fee is the same as the fee payable for replacing a lost or stolen licence (which is updated by these regulations to reflect the actual fee payable following the increase in goods and services tax on 1 October 2010).


Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 3 October 2013.

These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Transport.
