APPLYING FOR AN AUSTRALIAN DRIVER’S LICENSE
If your overseas license ceases to be valid, you may be eligible to apply for an Australian Driver’s license.
A person who enters Australia on a permanent visa or who is a permanent resident may drive on their current overseas licence for a maximum of three months after arriving in Australia. If they wish to continue to drive after three months, an Australian driver’s license must be obtained in the state or territory in which the person is residing.
