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.

We Say, You Say: The Last Lake

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Neighbours,

An Auckland trucking company wishes to dump millions of cubic metres of industrial waste in a proposed site in Huntly, close to the only 'swimmable' lake left in the Waikato region. In 2012, a Waikato Regional Council scientist compared the nutrient levels in Waikato lakes to 1316 others globally and found them to be among the worst. This indicator has not shifted in the eight years since.

What do you think about the proposal?
