You can generally drive in New Zealand on your overseas driver’s licence for the first 12 months but following this you will need to convert your license to a New Zealand driver’s licence. It's also important to get to know the New Zealand road rules if you plan on driving here.
Once you know where you will be living, you’ll need to find a doctor (General Practitioner - or GP) for you and your family. You will also need to enrol with the local Primary Health Organisation (PHO). Their contact details are listed on the health page for each region.
