Transferring driving licences!!

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure this is a Migration issue but its not really a job advert either but anyway....

 

I noticed that on the SA website for transport we can transfer our UK driving licences, simple!! However it also says that if you hold HGV then you will have to take a test, Has anyone else transferred their Cat C + E licences and if so is it an actual driving test or more of a formality where someone will take you for a spin to ensure your competent, safe etc.

 

I would be a bit gutted if I had to sacrifice them as it will not be a priority and wont have time initially to go through prep for a full on test!!

When I rocked up to the MVR in Darwin I was told that they would transfer my stuff up to 4.5tonne. Anything else after that I would have to take a test for. I still have my U,K licence up to date to retain my HGV side of things but had no desire to pay to take a test I have already passed.

 

Judging by Darwin drivers it appears most don't know how to drive anyway so I can't imagine the test would have been too hard. Lol.

Ha ha, So can you still drive HGV over here if your UK licence is up to date however you just wont have it on an Australian licence, is that right?

 

I was driving a truck about a month ago as I assumed a UK licence would do anyway!
