When should I apply for a driving license in Australia

Recommended Posts

Hey lovely gang, 

Slightly random one, have been meaning to ask for a while. 

I came to Australia on a 417 WHV and have been driving on my UK license since I arrived, I recently applied for a 489 for Tasmania and am on a bridging visa while I await the outcome. Is now a good time to apply for a Tassie driving license or do I need to wait until I actually have the visa grant? I don't want to bother if it's too early, but I also don't want to be driving on my UK license if I'm supposed to be on a Tasmanian one. 

 

Thanks a million. 

Anna. :-)

You can convert your UK licence anytime. Just need to head to the nearest department of motor vehicles or whatever the equivalent is in Tassie. However, as the screen capture from Transport Tas states, you need to convert it within 3 months of the date your PR is granted.

Good luck.
