NZTA have made some handy guides to help you pass your Restricted and your Full licence test. There is also a FAQ Page if you need more information.
Also check out the practice website https://www.practice.co.nz/ to help you pass your restricted test.
Practice is your essential tool to help you pass your restricted test the first time, and become a more competent driver. The Restricted test now requires more advanced skills such as hazard perception - so you'll need to spend more time on the road practicing. 120 hours is recommended.
Plus, signing up puts you into the monthly registration draw to win one of twenty $20 vouchers, as well as regular prize draws when you reach 40, 80 and 120 hours, so make sure you sign up.

“Plant this, not this” is an intersection road safety campaign designed to get people to slow down at intersections, stop at stop signs and be more observant at give way signs.
Around 40% off all crashes occur at intersections in the Ashburton District with the main causes being poor observation and failing to give way or stop.
It will cost you $150 and 20 demerit points if you plant your foot through an intersection, so plant sunflower seeds instead.
Make our roads safer and our lives brighter by planting this, not your foot.
Join in the competition! We are on the look out for the tallest sunflower you can grow! There are great prizes to be won and other categories you can enter. Can you grow the Tallest? The Most Popular (by Likes on Facebook)? The Smallest? The Oddest Shaped? or the Widest Head?
You can also find out more information on this campaign on Facebook by searching for "Plant This, Not This".
