There are some requirements that need to be satisfied in order to change your overseas driver licence to a Victorian driver’s licence. This also depends on whether your stay in Victoria is temporary or permanent.

The procedures are explained here in more detail at VicRoads overseas licence information website. We have summarised here some of the important points that are required for your overseas licence changeover.

Are you eligible for exemptions from licence tests?

If you hold a drivers licence from a recognised countries list then you are able to get your overseas licence conversion with no test provided your overseas licence is current and has not expired.

Furthermore, you still need to make an appointment with VicRoads to change-over your licence if you are from the overseas recognised countries.

In case the country that issued your license is not on this list than to get your overseas license converted to a Victorian license you will have to go through the following process.

The Process of Converting International Drivers Licence

The good news is that the whole process of getting your overseas license converted over to a Victorian driver’s license can be completed in one business day.

First book your learner permit and hazard test via VicRoads Bookings website.

Every person should know the local driving road rules and have a good control of their vehicles.

We at Sprint Driving School can help you to acclimatise to Australian roads quickly with expert and intensive driving lessons in Melbourne. These lessons help all overseas licence holders to get up to speed with their road knowledge and driving skills.

When you call Sprint Driving School, one of our driving instructors will be able to advise you on what to expect during the whole process.

Please mention that you have an overseas drivers licence and wish assistance in getting your licence converted.

We can inform you what to do and what to avoid in a driving test. This will enable you to maximize your driving test score and pass your Victorian Driving License test on your 1st attempt.

Remember the way people drive in everyday life is not the kind of driving you would be expected to perform in a driving test. When you pass your driving test you will get your full Victorian driving licence.
