Important Update from Study Melbourne:
Due to coronavirus, VicRoads has suspended light vehicle driving tests and computer-based tests. This means that there are some new rules regarding converting your overseas licence to an Australia licence.
If you are an interstate or overseas licence holder, you can continue to drive on your licence if you have not already been unsuccessful on a drive test.
If you were in Victoria prior to 29 October 2019:
- you now have until 29 April 2021 to convert your licence to a Victorian one.
- if you already had an appointment relating to your licence conversion booked, VicRoads will contact you to re-book when testing for overseas licence conversion commences again.
- if you had not yet made an appointment, you must book an appointment when testing for overseas licence conversion commences again.
Overseas licence holders who arrived in Victoria after 29 October 2019:
- you must book an appointment to convert your licence when testing for overseas licence conversion commences again.
Do you have some more questions?
VicRoads is the organisation responsible for setting the road rules in Victoria. VicRoads recommends all international students check their current licence status, especially if you have been living in Victoria for more than six months.
