Driving and Parking in Auckland

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 21 to hire a car in Auckland. You will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Auckland, take a look at our page about renting a car in New Zealand.

If you rent a car in Auckland you’ll soon discover to your delight that there are numerous parking options in this modern, progressive and car-friendly city. In the CBD there are special car park buildings, and elsewhere you’ll find lots of options for on-street pay-and-display parking.

In the central area on and around Upper Queen Street the hourly rate for metered on-street parking ranges from a minimum of NZ$3 to a maximum of NZ$9 for the whole day, which is relatively affordable when compared with similar-sized cities in Europe and the USA. There’s also a flat rate in the evenings of NZ$5, so if you fancy an evening of dining and entertainment parking will be no problem.

Driving in and around Auckland

Key routes

Although the planned state highway network remains incomplete, Auckland has excellent road links to attractions within the city and to surrounding areas. The motorways are generally used for short trips and have an arterial function, and there have been recent improvements to the city’s main Northern Motorway.

The Southwestern Motorway or SH20 arrives in Auckland from the southeast and ends in the Sandringham suburb.

The Waterview Connection of the Western Ring Route, of which SH20 forms a part, has been declared a ‘Road of National Significance’ by the government. It has greatly eased congestion in recent years.

Major Highways

Auckland’s Central Motorway Junction, also known as Spaghetti Junction (CMJ), has recently been the core of a number of motorway projects. It has enabled traffic which used to be funnelled along the coastal route to merge with SH1 in the Victoria Park area, and further ease congestion. When driving on the CMJ or other roads in and around Auckland remember a few things:

• Always use the left-hand side of the road when driving in New Zealand.
• The maximum speed is shown in kph and is 100kph on motorways and 50kph in suburban districts.
• Seat belts and child restraints must be used at all times.
• In suburban and urban areas drivers are forbidden to overtake. Double yellow lines on any route indicate that overtaking is not allowed along that stretch.
• Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is severely punished in New Zealand.
• When the traffic lights turn red you must stop. You may not make a right turn, even if the way is clear.
• Always carry with you in the car your full driver documentation, as spot checks by traffic police are fairly common. This should include your IDP if you’re required to have one, as well as an updated photo.
