    Im pretty sure that its 3 months, and there isn't any test you have to take to get them swapped over. The maximum time your license is valid here is 10 yrs then you have to renew, but you can get then for 3, 5 yrs

    I also heard recently that someone arrived from the UK with only a provisional license, one they had had for years, they went in to get their L's here in SA and were told that as they'd had their provisional for so long they were automatically given a full driving license. Im not sure how true that actually is, but it's a scarey thought as the said person hadn't had more than a couple of lessons back in the UK.

    three months if you're on a permanent visa, up to one year on a temporary visa.

    Also bear in mind that if you are driving on your UK driving licence that you must carry it with you at all times and also carry evidence of your Visa status. When I got pulled over and fined for this, I wasn't aware but that's my own fault. I soon changed over to an Australian licence.
