Turns out,the process of learning to drive on the left and signal at roundabouts was way harder than getting the license. That took at least two months to learn.
Just a 35 min wait in line at AA store with Zack circling me and pulling on the stands and travel merchandise - then an eye test and $55 NZD later, and I was getting a photo for my new license to drive down under!
Very cool! Out with the old and in with the new!
