Driver’s licence translated within a couple of hours online!

drivers licence sampleDue to stricter rules being imposed by transport agencies and police, foreign drivers licenses must be translated into English, otherwise rental car companies cannot release your Transfercar relocation vehicle to you (because it gets impounded and fines given).

I have been sent this link from one of our trusted rental companies THL, who passed on a quick and efficient way of getting an official translation and wanted to share this info with you guys:

Scan both sides of your license and email it to: [email protected]

Go to one of the Self-Check-In PCs and make a payment of NZ$60 on the agency’s website: (you can use Paypal or a valid Credit Card)

After approx. an hours time (usually quicker) you will receive an email with the official translation which you can print out and attach to your foreign license to show in case you get pulled over by the police.

They are even open on Sundays.
