johnr: You don't get my point the annoyance is they need it in the first place as there is no valid reason I can see not even my friend that works for the AA can see any reason


You must have missed the earlier posts.  I don't entirely disagree but it is nothing to do with the NZTA or AA or any other agency...it is the LAW plain and simple.  Check out 10(2) below

http://www.legislation.govt.nz/regulation/public/1999/0100/latest/DLM281326.html

If you don't agree with the law then have a chat with your local MP or lobby the MOT for a change, but until that happens the agencies have no choice.  

Otherwise IMO Storm = Teacup

Agree.  The OP could have done what was asked for and had the application processing by now...

Xile: Because when you apply for or renew your passport you have a section on the application where another person vouches for your identity, with resultant penalties for false applications, whereas when applying for or renewing your licence it's up to you alone to confirm your identity. Hence the requirment to confirm ones address.


I now have the required physical paper work which I could change to advise another address in 30 seconds

Xile: The information required to confirm identification is a legal requirement. See Land Transport (Driver Licensing) Rule 1999, Rule 10.

Oh so they are stuck in 1999, not 1995 Laughing

What about the folks with no physical address? My dad lives in his house bus, has for years, right now he's in the BOP packing kiwifruit, later in the year he'll be up north where its warm. He uses my address for stuff that insists on having an address to mail to rather than email him. So he has proof of address - its just not an address he's ever lived at or is ever at for more than a few hours.

Then you'd risk committing an offence against Section 44 of the Land Transport Act 1998 and potentially Section 111 of the Crimes Act.
