    Hi all, more questions!!( hopefully when i get there I will be able to answer for others!!) I currently hold full Car, Motorcycle and heavy goods licences, what do I have to do to change these over to Australian ones? I believe that the HGV is not transferable but think the motorcycle is ok? any advice? I think it will be more economical to have car for the wife and motorcycle for me till we settle in but think I will need the HGV licence asap to gain decent employment as I am a diesel fitter, also how much would I be looking at to take a HGV licence? (roughly).

     

    Thanks again

    Hi Steve,

    It could cost you a couple of grand to get the HGV depending upon what you want to drive as they have different classes..HR is Heavy Rigid for example. Depends upon manual or auto and class that you need mate.

    Hi

     

    you can change the car and motor bike but not the HGV my husband has changed the car and bike but had to do the HGV he's just completed the MR and waiting to do the HR if you look up Allen Miller in Lonsdale they do all this, you may see the prices too so you will have an idea or e mail them

     

     

    cheers
