International Licence Conversions

According to the Department of Transport and Planning (DTP) If you are in Victoria on a temporary visa, you can drive on your overseas driver licence for as long as it is current providing it is in English or accompanied by an English translation or International Driving Permit. There is no requirement to get a Victorian driver licence.

If you have entered Victoria on a permanent visa issued under the Migration Act 1958, you may drive on your overseas driver licence for:

  • six months from the date you first entered Australia if the permanent visa was issued before you entered Australia; or,
  • six months from the date when the permanent visa was issued to you if the permanent visa was issued to you whilst in Australia.

If you want to continue driving in Victoria after this time you must change your overseas licence to a Victorian driver licence.

If a person holds a current and valid licence from a recognised country, no test is required to obtain a Victorian driver licence, although they will still need to convert it to a Victorian one after residing in Victoria for six months.

The following countries are recognised in Victoria by Vicroads and the DTP: 

  • Australia (interstate)
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Canada (although licences from Ontario must be surrendered)
  • Croatia
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Guernsey
  • Ireland
  • Isle of Man (for licences first issued on or after 1 April 1991)
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Jersey
  • Luxembourg
  • Malta (for licences first issued on or after 2 Jan 2004)
  • Netherlands (Holland)
  • Norway
  • Portugal
  • Singapore
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • UK
  • USA

If a driver’s country is not recognised, to continue driving on Victorian roads after six months, they will need to sit the Victorian Learner Permit Test, the Hazard Perception Test and the Drive Test to obtain a current and valid licence.
