Excellent question.

Yes, you can drive on your UK licence for one year before you will need to get a New Zealand licence.

This is correct, you can drive for up to one year before you are required to sit a theory test (scratch and sniff) to convert your uk licence to a kiwi one.

Cost is currently $84 dollars and Jac has her's tomorrow.

if you have a UK bike licence convert them both at the same time to save a couple of bucks
