Learners license only lasts five years now too which would be a pain.

Gun license 



Despite being gov/Police issued, you can't use it to purchase alcohol. Not sure about other places.

Same when o last went to REregister as a school teacher,(passport was expired at the time) they'd take a gun licence, but not my drivers (with my P endorsement which requires a police check anyway!)

Unless I missed it there is still no confirmation on the purpose.  Different places will have different rules around what is acceptable or not.  For example when dealing with the NZTA for a licence application you are limited to:

 

  • a New Zealand photo driver licence
  • full birth certificate and Eftpos or credit card (for the signature)
  • a valid New Zealand temporary driver licence (21 days from date of issue). Note: Some temporary driver licences are not valid forms of ID. Your licence card will note this
  • overseas driver licence
  • New Zealand passport
  • overseas passport.

We went through all this 18months ago when our daughter was signing up for uni and student loan etc.

 

You need photo ID to get photo ID!

 

Passport was the easiest way to go. Lasts 10 years now, so $180 works out as only $18/year.

Daughter needed ID as a school we will have the odd homestay from, wanted Police report. Needed ID also, 18+ no go. Did new passport online what a nightmare, as no ID, Set up RealMe had to got to PO to ID herself even thou no accepted ID, would have been quicker to fill in form and bus to town to DIA. But its done, when I renewed my PP, online, in my letterbox in 3 days. She did advise me that no banks robbed lately, so got proof now!

 

Online great, but not always.

While I can understand why they'd want to have a police report - what guarantee do you have that they don't archive the data?

 

If they do archive the data, then what guarantee do you have that the archived data is as secure as the police database?

 

I wouldn't trust a school any more than I'd trust a corner dairy with data security.

 

 

Sorry this is a bit off-topic, but it seems that allowing access to a "police report" seems to be standard procedure for applying for jobs etc these days, yet do they guarantee that these reports are deleted from their records immediately after reading?

Oh they love their red tape in the UK. Try opening a bank account with a british passport only. It's easier if you have an NZ Passport with a visa!

Yes.

 

It was thirty years ago, and I'd hoped things had improved but they probably haven't.
I was going round in circles trying to get a cheque account, it was completely hopeless until I complained about it to my rich cousin. "No problem" he says "would Soho Square branch do? Good, I'll get my account manager to call them on Monday"
10:15 Monday my phone rings "Soho Square Branch Manager's secretary here, would 12:15 be convenient?", and by 12:30 I had an account and a temporary cheque book.

 

It's not what you know, it's who you know
Sigh

yeah i was told this too, was also told that asb could open an uk account for you before you go, so did that (no idea if they still do - it was 17 years ago now) so i did have an uk hsbc bank account, cheque book, and visa before leaving NZ, was best thing i did - watching other people trying to get a bank account when i was over there was painful
