Can I get a driving license on a visitor visa?

I currently have a visitor visa for 8 months. I have never gotten a license in my own country as I never needed it, but in NZ it’s a bit tricky to get around without one, so I’m considering studying/applying for one.

I’m not sure if this is possible on a visitor visa though. The NZTA website doesn’t seem to mention much about this.

I am from the Netherlands.
