Not wrong thread - The rules vary from State to State but in Adelaide you can swop your full UK driving licence for an Australian one. You will need to take in your UK one and complete the form and then pay the fee. You will have 3 months from the date you arrive to swop it over. We were given the advice however not to leave it to the 11th hr as they could ask you to re-sit a test. It is around $45 for the first year and then $27 per year. It is up to how long you do your licence for. They take your photo there and then and issue you a temporary one. Your permanent one is then sent to you in the post. Hope it helps.
