    Default Larger photo on driving licences

    Bigger licence picture will help police and liquor staff

    New licence - larger photo and text.

    Drivers are to have larger photographs embedded in their licences - to help the police know just who they are dealing with on dark nights.

    Hoteliers are also pleased with a plan by Land Transport New Zealand to enlarge photos and typefaces on driver licences issued from July.

    That is because many of their younger patrons use driver licences as identification to verify their age, and the Hospitality Association says the small sizes make it hard for bar staff to detect those who use older people's licences fraudulently to buy alcohol.

    Land Transport says the changes are in response to advice from the police that some features of existing licences can be difficult to see in poor light, especially when checking that a photo matches the driver of a car at the roadside.
