Could I please get everyone's advice.
I read on Immigration SA that Permanent visa holders must get a South Australian drivers licence after three months of residence.
Students, tourists and people working in South Australia on current temporary visas are allowed to drive on their UK licence only while their UK licence is current. If the UK licence expires you must get a South Australian driver's licence.
I confirmed this with sa.gov.au today, so legally we are ok to drive on our UK licence until we get our permanent visas, as long as we take our UK licence and a copy of our visa confirmation with us when driving.
Could you all help by letting us know what the benefits of getting an Australian driving licence could be i.e cheaper insurance, car rental costs etc.
Thanks in advance
