Applying for P endorsements for carrying passengers


From October 1, 2017, passing a P endorsement course is no longer required to drive a passenger service vehicle (i.e. a vehicle that takes paying passengers e.g. taxi, bus, coach, etc). Course providers must not issue any P endorsement certificates after October 1.

You are still required to hold a P endorsement, though. Drivers must have held a full New Zealand driver’s licence for at least two years before they can be granted a P endorsement.

No further driving test is required to get the P endorsement (previously a driver was required to re-sit a full licence test if it was more than 5 years after they had passed their last licence test).

Passenger  service licences

Passenger Service Licences (PSL) will be revoked on October 1 and replaced with either a Small Passenger Service Licence (SPSL) or a Large Passenger Service Licence (LPSL) or both. LPSL deals with passenger vehicles with 13 or more seats, including the driver).

Current PSL holders will be issued with both SPSL and LPSL at no cost.


Companies that don’t have a current PSL will need to apply for an LPSL.
