When you register a vehicle in your name you'll need to provide evidence of your identity. Your proof of ID must be the original. We don't accept photocopies or faxes, even if they are 'certified copies'.
Documents that confirm your date of birth, full name and signature, such as:
a New Zealand photo driver licence
full birth certificate and Eftpos or credit card (for the signature)
a valid New Zealand temporary driver licence (21 days from date of issue). Note: Some temporary driver licences are not valid forms of ID. Your licence card will note this
overseas driver licence
New Zealand passport
