I got them all right so feel quite confident in my driving skills - just worried about everyone else making errors

It's no worse than the risks you take with roundabouts v.s. indicators here.

Cheers for this, I'm really worried about mucking things up when the rules change so this has been quite helpful!

What is the problem here, we've all been doing this since we all started driving anyway - have you all suddenly turned in to idiot kiwi drivers?

Do you remember those nifty pedals you used to get in cars that flick the headlights up and down, why don't they do those any more? They where great at night when you where trying to change gears and light a cigarette or open a can of lager at the same time without having to blind oncoming motorists. Moral of the story is when in Rome....

I'm confused, when where rules implemented? I think if the government decided to implement and apply laws about standards and practises when driving they would have informed the public.

I'm obviously expected to drive in a white out as all I get is a vroom noise followed by nothing.

It's just the CD that is broken, the radio works fine. I like the fact that I have been driving around ALL arvo and the fuel tank has not moved..how cool is that???

And even better...you don't need to have your hands on the wheel...leaves them free for everything else

Aye, a real Kiwi driving experience, leaving you totally handsfree for the bourbon and coke in one hand, spliff in the other, texting you mate and eating your pie and tomato sauce.

Keep safe everyone!!

I just had a go for fun and made no mistakes. Your new rules must be how I drive in Italy every day. I wish Italian roads had cats eyes though.

That's so unsafe Bo! I'm disappointed with you...where is the can of V to keep you awake at the wheel when you've not slept?
