NZTA Class 1 Driver Licence

NZTA Class 1 Driver Licence – Recognition of Prior Learning

The New Zealand Class 1 Driver Licence unit standards are available to learners enrolled in a school or registered tertiary education organisation (TEO) which holds consent to assess for the “Driver Licence Class 1” domain.

There are three standards:

  • 29363 – Learn to drive a vehicle within the conditions of a Class 1 New Zealand learner driver licence
  • 293654 – Drive a vehicle within the conditions of a Class 1 New Zealand restricted driver licence
  • 29365 – Drive a vehicle within the conditions of a Class 1 New Zealand full driver licence

Credits from these standards can count towards learners’ achievement of NCEA and other qualifications on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework.

Only Class 1 (car) licences issued since 27th February 2012 are covered.

There is no expectation that schools/TEO will provide opportunities for a learner to gain their licence, though you may choose to do so.
