SA Driving licence in other states!????
I have just been reading Newbies thread about SA Driving licences which has had some good feedback.
My question is, 'once an SA driving licence has been obtained are you allowed to, drive, hire vehicles, apply for driving jobs, etc, etc in any other Australian states or do you have to have a different licence for each state"?
Hi, you can drive all over the country (and the world) on a SA Licence, you only have to get a licence for another state if you move there. If you get demerit point in SA they will carry to your new licence if you move.

If you give them your british driving licence and dont tell them about your other state licence, then you just get a new clean one, But again it has to be your main residence.
