On 1st March 2014 the new Competency Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) courses will be available for those who want an alternative and faster way to achieve their Restricted and Full Licences. Too see the differences between CBTA and the Standard Practical Test Options, see HERE for an explanation.
The CBTA1 is for those who already hold a Learners Licence and are ready to apply for the Restricted Licence. There is NO MINIMUM TIME RESTRICTION to do the CBTA1 but all applicants are highly advised to seek additional training prior to attempting to pass. You can find the study guide HERE
The CBTA2 is for those already on their Restricted Licence and want to achieve their Full Licence. The CBT2 can be done at any time while on your Restricted Licence but you must have held your Restricted Licence FOR A MINIMUM OF 12 Months before presenting a CBT2 certificate to apply for the Full Licence.
Both courses still require you to take the a Certificate (once passed) to a NZTA agency to process and a small application fee will apply (approx $50).
