Driving Licience

    Recommended Posts

    Morning all, from Dorset, England rain again here like yesterday it does that a lot here when you go away for a week (half term) with the kids come back with a mountain of washing it then rains so you can't dry it, my tumble dryer packed up several months ago so its radiators, airers and washing line on a dry day its a great start to summer last week there were floods in Crewcerne unbelievable.

     

    Anyway my husband and I was wondering do you know when and if you have to take driving retest or how do you obtain an Australian Driving Licience or do you have to change or apply for one for Australian Driving Licience. We both drive got clean driving licienses had them for around twenty years.:huh:

    All you need to do is take your current English Licence, your Passport, the fee and the form filled out. Take it to the desk, have your photo taken and about a week later your new SA Licence is posted to you. You obviously need an Australian address though.

    Cant really remember what the fee was but I think it was around $190 for 10 years.

    I went and did this today and I think I might have got a jobsworth but she insisted I also had to have somthing official ie letter from bank with my australian adress on! And somthing other than my driving licence with my sig on. For referance I handed over passport, Driving licence (both bits) letter from bank and uk credit card. Then no isssue paid $65 for 2 years and got paper licence. As a point of interest it has to be noted on your licence if you need glasses to drive.
