The exception is the Wellington smart motorway, choose the lane best suited for your intended exit and obey the variable speed. There is no last lane.

Key driving skills
Keeping left on a laned road
Most roads in New Zealand have lanes marked on them with a white line or raised studs.
When driving on a laned road, it is important to drive your vehicle within your lane.
Where there are two or more lanes on your side of the centre line:
- keep in the left-hand lane as much as you can
- don't use the lane closest to the centre line if you will hold up other vehicles.
The lane closest to the centre line should only be used when:
- you want to pass another vehicle
- you want to turn right
- the left-hand lane is full with other traffic or is blocked.
