Driving with an overseas license
If you are just visiting Australia, you can drive the same type of vehicle as your current licence allows, but you must drive according to any conditions on your overseas licence.
You will need either one of these:
- A current licence issued in another country that is written in English
- A current licence with an English translation if necessary or an international driver’s licence.
- You must carry your licence documents at all times when driving and produce these and your passport to police on request.
- You must not be disqualified from driving in any country.
If your overseas licence expires while you are in Australia, you must get an Australian license.
