There's a call for overseas tourists to have to sit an online driving test before being allowed to drive here.

It comes after an traveller from India, being prosecuted for dangerous driving, told the judge he didn't know what the white lines down the centre of the road were for.

Dog and Lemon Guide Editor, Clive Matthew-Wilson, told Larry Williams, foreign drivers have undergone different training for different road conditions than those in this country.

"The obvious thing to do is to put an interactive test in, in which you simulate how you would be driving on our roads, including driving on the right side, and then if they can't pass that test, they can't rent a car.
