Overseas Licence

We can help you with your application for a Victorian driver’s licence.

If your overseas driver’s licence is more than 3 years old, you will get a full Victorian driver’s licence upon completion of formalities.

Australian traffic travels on the left side of the road unlike some countries in Asia, Europe, Africa and America’s.
