‘It’s a dog’s breakfast’: Minister’s vow to fix international driver loophole
Customer Service Minister Victor Dominello is promising action over a system that is making it harder for police officers to deal with international drivers breaking the law.
NSW will introduce arrangements so that all overseas licence holders would be required to apply for a NSW driver’s licence once they have lived in NSW for a continuous period of three months (this includes people on visiting visas and student visas).
But Ray Hadley has been contacted by Highway Patrol officers, who say they are unable to check how long someone has been in the state for and if they are therefore required to get a NSW license.
Mr Dominello told Ray Hadley he will work on a solution.
“[The system] is a dog’s breakfast.”
