Since mid-September, no one can pass their driver’s license examination in Wallis and Futuna.

A legal proceeding is underway and a complaint was filed by an union organization of driving schools in New Caledonia, according to Wallis-et-Futuna la 1ère, the local television channel.

Low cost
Every month, an estimated 50 non-resident candidates come to Wallis-et-Futuna, mainly from New Caledonia, to pass their test because of the lower cost of the licence there (410 australian dollars).  As there’s no driving school nor licence inspector in the archipelago, the document is issued by the Public works department.
