Firearms safety e-learning


Due to the recent firearms laws changes some firearms-related information is under review.

The e-learning modules and Arms Code quiz will help you prepare for your firearms theory test. Even if you’re an experienced firearms user, you can check your understanding of firearms safety in order to keep your knowledge up-to-date.

The quiz will give you an idea of the types of questions you may be asked in the firearms theory test. You’ll be able to see how well you’ve done and can practice as many times as you like.

The e-learning modules will assist with your base knowledge of firearms ammunition and common types of firearms in use in New Zealand.

Note: The quiz doesn’t include all of the questions you may be asked in the firearms theory test. Make sure you thoroughly study the Arms Code.
