                              but yeah i reckon youd need about 5 licences to spread the points over

                              or do it on one and just be prepared to get in a fair bit of trouble afterwards

                              edit.. who am i kidding .. 50 licences probably
                              A guy who i knew when i was living in Melbourne (idiot Swede, a real one) thought his flight over to the US was leaving from Melbourne until 8pm the night before it was due to leave, and found out that it was leaving from Brissy at 7pm the next day.
                              Instead of doing what any normal people would do and just fly up, he decides that he wants to see Australia one last time and hires a car to drive up the coast to Brissy. NFI how he made it in time, but the next time i heard from him he was in San Francisco, and had about 40+ speeding fines which he wasnt intending to pay.
