What do I need to do to get a Class 2 Learner Licence?

  • You must have held a full NZ Class 1 (car) licence for at least 6 months.
  • You’ll need to get a medical certificate (unless you have presented one to the NZTA in the last 5 years).
  • Apply for a Class 2L at a licensing agency (e.g. AA, VTNZ or VINZ).

If you need coaching with your Class 2 Learner Licence - we can provide training for a small additional fee.

How long does the Class 2 course take?

There is a little pre-course study (collect your study book/s when you come in to pay for the course). There is then normally one day in class (sometimes an hour or two more), followed by 2 to 4 hours practical driving on day 2 (arranged with instructor on day 1).

What unit standards are covered?

What happens when I pass the course?

  • Take the certificate we give you to a licensing agency (e.g. AA, VTNZ or VINZ)) and they will help you apply to have your licence amended to include your new full Class 2 license (Fees apply). We recommended that you present this within 60 days.
  • Contact us in 3 months (if you are over 25) or 6 months (if you are under 25) to go for your Class 3 or Class 4 license - If you are over 25 you may also qualify for a reduction in the 3-month wait – talk to us. 

IMPORTANT:
You cannot drive with just the certificate - it is not a license.
