**NZ Impression-身分證

紐西蘭很神奇的一件事是--他們都沒有身分證!那他們的市民要怎麼樣證明他們的身分呢?用駕照或是學生證~~

他們說小孩出生後,都會有一張Birth Certificate(出生證明),可以用來證明小孩是紐西蘭公民與否,載到他進學校唸書之前,都是用這一張紙。而如果你沒有這張證明的話,你就必須要付學費,而他們說到,這邊大多都會檢查亞洲人有沒有這張證件,假如你看起來像Kiwi、說話像Kiwi,他們根本連看都不看的~~

而進入學校後當然就有學生證了,這是可以用來證明你身分的東西,到你考駕照後,你可以有正式的駕照,基本上這邊要檢查身份的話,都是看駕照的~~而以前的駕照上並沒有照片,所以常常可以冒名頂替,不過現在已經改進了~加了照片後就不可能了~~

Homestay媽媽說,基本上從他拿到駕照之前,他都是沒有任何的證件的~而護照也是到他要出國去荷蘭的時候,才申請到的。而當時他們小孩的護照也是全部都附掛在他的護照中,所以他的護照裡面就有他和其他三個小孩的資料~不過小孩長大後,就可以自己申請他們的護照了~

(Personal I.D.)

I'm surprised they don't have a personal I.D. in New Zealand. The only thing that can prove who you are, is your driver license. Before you get your license, you can use your student I.D.. If you are born in New Zealand, you will get a birth certificate. You can use this to enter schools. I wondered if you are not a student anymore, and you can't drive. What can you do?

My homestay mother said before she got her license, she didn't have any I.D.. In Taiwan, we have a personal I.D.. It's very important, and you have to carry it around with you every day. You need that to apply for a mobile phone number, to rent a house....Almost everything needs personal I.D..

My homestay mother said it's because they like freedom, so they don't need too many cards. And the whole system still works well. Before there were no photos on the driver license, and you could borrow someone else's license and go to a pub even if you were only 15 years old. Now, they put photos on the driver license, it's much better.
