Have you done a driving test recently?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

A Hamilton woman was failed on the spot, and told her 'dirty' front seat was a Covid-19 risk.

Letticia Pevy, 38, had held her restricted licence for years but needed her full licence for work.

She went to sit hers at VTNZ Frankton, but was failed as soon as the testing officer opened the passenger door.

Concrete renovations

Te Puao from All Things Concreting

Another customer ready for the summer holidays.
Does your home need an extra lift? Maybe a small patio or BBQ area to host the summer festivities. Feel free to get me around for a free no obligation quote and let's see if we can't get that renovation you've been thinking about underway.
Happy Thursday neighbours
