A fake site is preying on Kiwis booking their driver licence tests, NZTA warns.

The suspicious website www.bookpracticaldriverlicencetest.com is taking unauthorised payments for driver licensing test bookings. The website also asks people to provide their driver licence number, date of birth and other personal information.

New Zealand Transport Authority spokesman Robyn Elston said the website has no connection to NZTA and she urged people not to use it.

She said two customers said on Tuesday they had inadvertently provided their details on it.

NZTA put up a red banner on their site earlier in the week to warn people not to use the fake site and they have not had any more reports of customers using it.

Elston said NZTA will replace your licence for free if you have entered your details on the site.

"We're urging anyone who has inadvertently provided their driver licence details on the unauthorised website to phone our contact centre on 0800 822 422 so we can arrange for their licence to be cancelled and a free replacement provided.

"This will ensure that their licence details will not be validated if someone attempts to use them for illegitimate purposes."

NZTA has reported the website to the Department of Internal Affairs.
