Christine Meads made this Official Information request to New Zealand Transport Agency

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Christine Meads to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Christine Meads

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

Can you please provide a breakdown for the below across each region and nationally for each of the years separately - 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022:

- How many people who sat their restricted licence test for the first time passed it?
- Of those people who didn't pass on their first attempt, how many went on to pass the restricted licence test on their second attempt?
- On average, how many attempts did it take for people to pass their restricted licence?

Can you please provide the same breakdown for people sitting their full licence test.

Does the Government cover the cost for people on a Government funded benefit to sit a restricted or full licence test?

Yours faithfully,

Christine
