    Hello

     

    Just take your UK driving licence, proof of your new address, passport and a nice smile for having your photo taken and voila you can get an Aussie licence. You get to keep your UK one as well. You do not need to take another test. No one here takes a test!!!!!

     

    :arghh:

    When I moved here in 1994 I did have to take a full South Australian driving test (theory and practical).

     

    Luckily for you guys now they have seen sense and you don't have to take it anymore.

    As the others have mentioned, it's not an issue. If you have a bike licence as well, make sure you mention it so they add it - I know someone who had there's added and they didn't have it on their British licence :)

    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.

    Car and bike licence is a straight transfer from uk to South Australian.

    If you have a PSV / PCV or any type of LGV / HGV you will have to resit a driving test but its pretty easy by UK standards.
