Each and every state has got different rules and regulations concerning driver licenses from overseas. Several states recognize international driving licenses or overseas licenses that have been translated by certified translators.

Driving using an International Driving license/Permit

If the license isn’t written in English, the Australian authority may only allow you to drive unless you have an official 驾照翻译 translation or international driver’s license or permit. The license requirement also depends on the visa status that you have, as well as where you live.

Doing a mandatory test to convert the license
Another option is that Australia allows certain countries to convert the licenses to Australian and don’t necessarily need to have any tests done.

The first thing that the Australian authority check if the applicants you understand and knows how to use controls or make sure that the car is roadworthy before you start to drive. The driving test has to section, and the total time taken for the test is around 30 minutes. In the first 10 minutes, you are asked to do a three-point turn or to reverse on a park. When you pass this first test, you enter into the second test; that’s about 20 minutes that you drive on the major roads as you change the lanes, and that’s the end. If all this goes well, you get back to the testing station and get your driver’s license, and you are free to drive around in Australia.
