Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be vaccinated to visit a VTNZ branch?

No. Under the COVID Protection Framework / Traffic Lights, you do not need to be fully vaccinated to visit a VTNZ branch for all services other than Driver Testing.

You must have a valid ‘My Vaccine Passport’ to sit your practical driving test.

When can I sit my Practical Driving Test under the traffic light system?

Practical Driver Testing services are available at all levels – Red, Orange and Green.

VTNZ have worked closely with Waka Kotahi (NZTA) following the Ministry of Health guidelines to develop the necessary health and safety procedures that will allow us to conduct tests and keep everyone safe under each of the new traffic light levels.

Due to the time a test takes and the close proximity, Practical Driver Testing is a close contact service. Therefore, you must have a valid ‘My Vaccine Pass’ to sit your test. 

A valid ‘My Vaccine Pass’ is required for all classes of licence – motorbike, car, and truck. You must have this to sit your Practical Driving Test. A face covering is required for all classes, with the exception of the practical component of the motorcycle test.

For more information, please see our COVID Driver Testing page.

Do I need to wear a face covering in VTNZ branches?

Please wear a face covering at all times under Red and Orange. No face coverings are required at Level Green.

If you have a face covering exemption, and therefore not wearing a face covering when you visit a branch – you will need to have a valid ‘My Vaccine Passport’ to enter a branch. This will be verified by staff.

If you have a face covering exemption, but do not have a valid ‘My Vaccine Passport’ – for the health and safety of our team we will not be able to serve you.
