    Changing Uk drivers licence to WA licence

    Hi Chris, I have just changed my UK licence to a WA one and I had one of the older licences one too. From what I gather and don't take this as gospel but with your car licence you are only allowed to drive anything up to 4.5 tonnes. Hope that helps

    Any 175ers still awaiting a CO?

    Guys, Just to emphasize the point, if you can i would seriously think about getting the visa label put in your passport. I have been here 4 weeks now and it makes life so much easier when you open your bank account, register for Medicare, register with employment agencies....theres no delay in them checking with DIAC about your visa...

    The IT field Thread

    Guys, I landed in Perth last week (14th Aug) and having done quite a bit of legwork while in the UK (see my post on Page 2) I met with 2 recruitment agencies, the ones who seem serious in representing you will want to meet you (from my experience anyway). One of them set me up with an interview a few days later and I found out today they I have got the job, its only a 3 month contract but with possibilities of an extension. So from my point of view, the market seems good

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news but you need 8 points in each band to get 20 points.

    The IT field Thread

    Hi, Im a CRM Dynamics Developer, been doing that for about 2 years, prior to that I have 10 years experience with SQL databases and MS Access, I have also in the past few years done some BI work with SSRS and SSIS. Currently based in the Midlands but moving to Perth in August on a 175. Have been looking on Seek.com.au for jobs and contacting the recruiters through LinkedIn, had some positive replies from them but they all say it would be easier when Im in Perth or re-contact them about 4 weeks before Im due to arrive. If anyone has any suggestions/contacts I would be grateful if you could pass them on. Regards Bharat

    No mate, haven't found anything yet, still hunting, been in touch with some agencies via LinkedIn, sounds promising but nothing set in stone yet. Think we won't based far from you, looking at Hocking area initially.

    Converting 175 to 176

    Someone with a bit more knowledge will hopefully answer this for you properly but I thought this wasn't possible anymore.
  14. Not sure if this will help you but the domain.com.au Ipad is brilliant, you can scan to the area you are interested using a map view and it will show you the properties that are for sale/rent in that area.

    can vodafone transfer our contract to VF australia?

    Hi mate, Im just moving to PAYG for the last couple of months as I want to start cancelling direct debits and monthly commitments and by moving to PAYG I get to keep my number if I ever have to move back to the UK. Also this way it stops Vodafone taking money from my account when I do move over to Oz.
