The SuperGold Card is a free discounts and concessions card available to New Zealand residents who are aged 65 years or over and those under 65 years receiving New Zealand Superannuation or the Veteran's Pension. If you want to add a photo to your card, you can do this at your nearest AA Driver and Vehicle Training Licensing Agent.
Get free discounts and concessions with the SuperGold Card
The SuperGold Card recognises the valued contribution our seniors and veterans have made, and continue to make, to New Zealand society. It gives cardholders access to a wide range of business discounts and will facilitate easy access to government entitlements and local council concessions.
The card will automatically be sent to all New Zealand residents who receive New Zealand Superannuation or a Veteran's Pension, or if they are aged 65 years or over and are receiving some other form of assistance from the Ministry of Social Development. Eligible applicants can also apply for a Supergold Card.
Use your SuperGold card as photo ID
SuperGold Card carriers may choose to add a photo to their SuperGold Card. This could be useful if you don't have a current form of photo identification, such as a driver licence or passport.
To arrange for a photo to be added to your card, visit your nearest AA Driver and Vehicle Training Licensing outlet with your card, along with three forms of identification that verify your name and date of birth, plus, evidence of your address. It's a free service for all SuperGold card holders.
Your photo will be taken and a new card posted to you - all free of charge.
The AA's involvement
AA has a nationwide network of driver licensing outlets and is the only New Zealand organisation with Digital Counter Capability across the country. We decided to participate in the SuperGold initiative to ensure that the New Zealand public had easy access to a free photograph service.
With 70% of all SuperGold Card holders already holding a New Zealand driver’s licence, we hope a majority of people are already aware of where their local AA Licensing agent is.
