So, driving in New Zealand may be a bit more challenging than what you are used to. So just to be safe, here is a quick reminder of the most important rules to driving in New Zealand. These tips are more important than tips of buying a second hand car in New Zealand.

The basic speed limits in New Zealand are 30km/h near roadworks and dangerous zones, 50km/h in cities and towns, and 100 km/h on highways.

6. Know how to use roundabouts:

6. Know how to use roundabouts First, when approaching a roundabout, indicate left to show that you intend to exit left or right to show that you are going more than halfway around the roundabout to exit right. You don’t need to indicate if you are exiting the roundabout straight ahead. You must give way to all traffic that will cross your path from the right.
