      Just checked the dvla site, and yes to change address you need to be a resident of the uk, how this affects temp resident visa here in oz i do not know. and you need to give previous 3 years address's, they will check all other agencies too! like dept of work and pensions, and HM revenue & customs. It does also tell you that that if you are moving abroad then you can not have your overseas address on your uk licence and to contact your licencing authority incountry if residence.

      Thanks for that jim and adel, something everyone from uk needs to be aware of (myself included), suppose you could still use it as photo id (that is if you have the photo type)

      As already mentioned your UK licence is not valid after 3 months as you no longer live at the address stated on the licence.

      Word of warning - don't try whipping out your UK licence in an attempt to avoid penalty points if you have an Australian licence. The copper will just do a rego check, see that you own the vehicle and have a local licence and then give you a harsher fine for trying to be a smart arse.
