Competition Licences

This page includes information and links for the competition licence application process, the types of competition licence and licence exam questions.

Before a competition licence can be issued, the applicant must pass the licence exam applicable for the grade of licence they wish to secure. The following documents contain questions that you may be asked during the exam. To help you prepare for the exam please refer to the MotorSport Manual.

Once you have prepared for the exam, go onto the MotorSport Online system, complete your registration (if you haven’t already done so) and apply for the applicable licence. Then you will need to arrange a time with a licence examiner to sit the exam – contact details for licence examiners all over New Zealand can be found at the bottom of this page. Once you have successfully completed the licence exam, the examiner will register the result in the system and the MotorSport NZ office will process and issue your licence.
