Tips and Advice

Vehicles in the USA are Left Hand Drive, some vehicles may need to be converted to Right Hand Drive in order to comply with NZ Road Standards. Others may be able to remain Left Hand Drive due to various NZTA rules & regulations. One common factor is that vehicles that are 20 years old or over do not have to be converted to RHD. See the full rules & regulations here.

Original titles (ownership papers) are required for all vehicles being exported from the USA so ensure that the seller is able to provide these papers when purchasing vehicles from the USA. Make sure you know all of the costs involved.
