Hello Been trying to find the answers to these questions but everywhere seems to point me towards different info. I've arrived in Queensland I'm 25 and I have held a provisional UK driving license for 5 years. What license can I get in Australia? What tests do I have to take? And at what stage will I be able to drive on my own? Thanks Ben
Sugarcane posted a topic in Aussie ChatHi People, We migrated to Oz in Feb. My UK driving licence will run out this month (10 years from last issue). RTA (now RMS) told me I'm not eligible for NSW licence as I have to be continuously in Australia for 6 months. I last went on holidays in May, so can't get NSW licence yet. There is an option of renewing british licence online. But it clearly says one has to be resident of UK at the time of application. Also on last page of online application they say they will check data with few agencies. So I stopped my online application there. Any help/tips/ information on this urgent issue will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance SC
David W posted a topic in Aussie ChatHi, Is there still no requirement to change from a UK driving licence to an Aussie licence while on a 457 temporary residence visa. I've been here a couple of years on a 457 visa and over that time applied for an Aussie licence. Unfortunately I have racked up a number of demerit points which means I'm likely to have it suspended which is very problematic, particularly with work. I know there was no requirement to convert while on a 457 visa a couple of years but wondered whether that was still the case, and whether I could still drive on a UK licence during the 3 month suspension of the Aussie licence. Has anyone had any experience of this? I also intend to apply for PR, if I get PR is there still a 4 month grace period to change over? Thanks David
