Car written off in collision with tourist driver but insurance companies aren't paying

I don't know if that's true about other states, it might be, but if it is then why are people flying from other states to Queensland to get their licences instead of just exchanging it in their jurisdiction?

Either way Queensland transport is responsible for their decision to take part in a practice of giving licenses to people without testing them, or verifying the original countries licence is genuine, and risking the lives of Queensland motorists in the process. If that's not the definition of misconduct of public office then I don't know what is.

You start out.pointing to an international convention about letting essentially tourists or visitors drive for short periods on an overseas license as the reason that we should let this happen (from my reading of that convention it's less than 12 month period), then when that falls over you refer to some interstate agreement. Which I'm sure if we could find it would essentially say if you have a licence in one Australian state or territory you can exchange for a licence in another without having to go through the whole testing process again.

I think you're trying to defend the indefensible, but I don't understand why?
