I don't think you can, my BIL couldn't bring his, I think he just has to pay to keep it now for if he ever wants to use it again if he goes back to the uk.

My understanding is that you can have ought you like..up to six digits, must not be rude (ish) I have seen 'Shyte' in our town!!! So long as no one else has it. The www is www.plates.co.nz I think you can run a search and they will let you know if you can have it. There is a Range Rover in town with DFS on british style perspex plates..they are alloy in NZ.

There is a search engine on the home page..tap your plate in and they will insatntly tell you if you can have it!!
