Name change for Creative Commons Aotearoa NZ

Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand is now officially known by a new name – Tohatoha – the Māori word for ‘share’.

Tohatoha advocates for open access and open licensing across a range of sectors in New Zealand – including education, government, science, arts and entertainment.

It is part of the Creative Commons Global Network, which helps people share their copyright works for reuse by others through Creative Commons licenses.

These licenses allow individuals, institutions, and public agencies to choose the kinds of permissions they grant over their work.

Driving safely in New Zealand

Heading out on the road over mid-term break? New to New Zealand? Welcome.

This country is renowned for its diverse and beautiful scenery, wonderful locations and fantastic people.

One of the best ways to experience and absorb the sights and sounds of this land is by driving. However New Zealand roads may be very different to those you may be used to driving on.

The New Zealand Police and the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) are committed to ensuring all road users safely enjoy the driving experience.

Visiting drivers eligible to drive in New Zealand must have a current and valid overseas driver licence or international driving permit. If you’re here for more than 12 months, you’ll need to gain a New Zealand driver licence. 

Have a safe journey.
