The standard on this would be the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4819:2011 Rural and Urban Addressing, which has been adopted by the Intergovernmental Committee on Surveying and Mapping.

You really just need to know the main road rules and road signs. If you're visiting New Zealand, there's a tourist road code quiz you can do for free. The agency you rent your car from will have some advice and there's a booklet called 'Driving in New Zealand' which is multi-lingual and usually provided in the glovebox of your rental vehicle. Finally, you'...

Even for that would be considered major roads, it is easy for it to take 20-40% more. Road conditions vary from having brand new smooth parts to unfinished terrain the the same road! The other things to note is, while ...
