Re: NT drivers - whats the go with licencing??
No BS mate. No points here, just fines (infact, until a while back I'd never really heard of points except in American movies etc :), and what he said about losing license is about right too. All that plus no speed limits on the open roads..... and ppl wonder why I don't wanna move interstate 8-)
Y'know, you could get a license in the NT and just come for a drive back here for a few days every few months, you could just say you live in the NT but have heaps of looong holidays! ;-)
While we're on the topic of state laws/differences, I think I heard something weird the other day like in some states you have to be 18 before you can get your license - is this real?? If so, is it just your full license, or you can't even get L's until 18? That'd suck if it's true (not that it concerns me any more I guess :)
Also, some of you guys on East Coast etc. have some 50km speed limits around the place don't you? How do you handle it? I just found out the Territory is gonna cop 50km limits in some areas in March '04 - That sucks IMO - they've been reducing our speed limits everywhere, used to have a few 70 zones around Alice, now they've reduced some of them and made it a bit further out of town before you get an open limit and even made it 110 limit half the way to Ayer's Rock - now 50 zones ?!?!
