How do I upgrade my provisional licence?

If you began studying towards the Graduate Certificate in New Zealand Immigration Advice in or before February 2015 you may apply to upgrade at any time once you have completed the Graduate Certificate.

If you began studying towards the Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma in New Zealand Immigration Advice after February 2015 you must hold your provisional licence for two years and have completed and passed either the Graduate Certificate or Diploma in New Zealand Immigration Advice.

You may not apply to upgrade your licence more than three weeks before you have held a provisional licence for 24 months. The Registrar’s decision will not be sent until you have held a provisional licence for 24 months.

Licensing toolkit has more information about upgrading your licence.
