Test taking tips

Student ready for test


It can be a nervous time leading up to and taking your learner licence test so, in addition to the obvious things like getting a good night’s sleep the night before, here are a few test taking tips to help make you in your preparations. Hopefully these will improve your chances of passing your road code test with flying colours.

Be prepared

It’s stating the obvious, but the number one way to avoid stress and ensure that you ace your test is to put in the correct amount of time studying the road code beforehand. Last minute cramming can’t make up for a well balanced programme of study over a period of time that leads up to your test. See our study tips for some ideas.

Know where you’re going

You need to book and sit your learner licence test at your nearest AA, VINZ or VTNZ. Google maps it beforehand so you know where you’re going and how long it will take to get there. If you’re being driven there then ensure you know where your driver will be able to park.

Bring everything you need

There are a few things you’ll need to have with you including proof of your identity, such as a passport or birth certificate, and the ability to pay the fee. You’ll also have your photo taken so make sure you’re having a good hair day! For the full details check out the NZTA website.

Don’t rush

The test is pretty short and won’t take you very long. But don’t be tempted to whiz through it too quickly. Read each question carefully and ensure that you fully understand the question before selecting your response.

We hope you found these test taking tips helpful – good luck for your road code test!
