BREAKING NEWS! 😯😯😯
The Victorian Government made it mandatory in October 2019 that all Overseas Licence Holders who live and/or work in Victoria and are driving here must convert to a Victorian drivers licence within 6 months after moving to the state. If this is not carried out, the driver will be unlicenced and unable to drive.
When this was put into law, existing drivers were given 6 months to convert their driving licence to a Victorian. This deadline is the end of April 2020.
VicRoads are already experiencing a surge of drivers from overseas who are wanting to book a date and time to convert their licence, leading to a long waiting list and redirections to VicRoads offices further away.
Depending on the individual situation, a driver from overseas wanting to convert to a Victorian drivers licence may be required to undertake the VicRoads tests which include the road law knowledge test, the hazard perception test and the drive test.
VicRoads recognises driving licences from different countries, and existing driving experience from others, so it is important to check if you may be required to undertake the tests or simply convert your licence. To find out, visit this link:
