This guy did his driving test in 100% Te Reo Māori

For Tawaroa Kawana, his language is one of the most important things in his life. 

I will do everything in my power to keep my language alive forever.

Tawaroa Kawana arrived to sit his driving test at VTNZ and was curious to see if any of the driving test instructors spoke Māori. 

He was stoked to find out that Matua Richard Waihi had no problem with taking him through his test in Te Reo. 

Tawaroa Kawana was also the man behind the video of 18,000 people singing Maimoatia at One Love in 2018.
