A woman who committed a fatal hit-run in Huntly three years ago has regained her driver's licence.
Taylah Hocking, 22, was 19 years old when she struck and killed 45-year-old Tracey-Lee Kemp on the Midland Highway in August 2016.
After the collision Hocking staged a car crash in Epsom and was picked up by a friend.
Ms Kemp was found by a passer-by more than two hours later.
A probationary driver at the time, Hocking admitted to police she had been drinking that night.
She pleaded guilty in June 2017 to dangerous driving causing death, failing to stop after an accident and failing to render assistance after an accident.
Hocking made an application to regain her licence in the Bendigo Magistrates' Court on Friday.
The court heard she had completed a drink-driving course and treatment.
Police prosecutor Dave Rennie asked Hocking about her drinking habits, to which she replied she only drank on special occasions.
She agreed it was difficult without a licence as she had to rely on others.
Hocking told the court she had served one year of her three-year sentence in a youth detention centre and was now on parole.
Magistrate Simon Zebrowski granted the application and wished Hocking luck.
