Important Notice from Study Melbourne: 

If you are an international student and you reside in Victoria, there are some new rules you should know about.  

From 29 October 2019, all residents driving on an international licence will have six months to get a Victorian licence.  

There are no changes to the licence requirements and assessments. 

After six months, a resident on an international licence will not be able to drive in Victoria.

  • If you arrive as a new student in Victoria after 29 October 2019 you will have six months from the day you arrive to get a Victorian licence. 
  • If you are a student already living in Victoria, regardless of when you arrived, you have six months from 29 October 2019 to convert to a Victorian licence. 

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.
