    I remember when I converted my overseas licences (US and two other jurisdictions) some 20+ years ago, I had to sit the written test before getting my full license convertion. Has NZTA changed the rules now?

    Also remember, you don't need to have a license to own a car in NZ.

    A bus weaving like that in rush hour traffic, who needs tourists for an accident. I have many similar examples on my bike dashcam.

    Nothing new mate. Bus drivers in Auckland have always been cunts.
    Why are the comments for the clip turned off?

    A thing to look at in crashes with "Foreign driver involvement" ... is whom is at fault. Often the headline is "Overseas tourist was involved" not always found to be at fault. Mention of charges laid is usually mentioned on page three a week later.
    Page 3 is the diagram page. Page 4 tells the story.

    I'm referring to the crash reports.

    I should turn them on, just had the default setting in my head as off.

    As for the bus drivers, this time I was driving. But on the bike using bus lane has made me very aware of their ways.

    You can drive on an overseas license (from an approved country) for 12 months before you need the NZ license.
    Sweat wipes off. Road-rash doesn't.

    And I was referring to the newspaper page three . although you are probably more familiar with the page 3 of another tabloid
