Driving in SA

What's Hot

Hello po sa mga taga SA. Not sure if may discussion na about this. Pero ask ko lang po sana how’s the process po ng pag-convert ng PH license jan? I understand po na you can use it for 3months lang. So within that 3 months dapat po ma-convert na agad?

And I have read something about PIDP (Philippines International Driving Permit), which is valid naman daw for 1year from date of application. Pwede po kaya yun muna ang gamitin? Para mejo mahaba time makapag-prepare sa pag convert? Parang mejo tight po kasi yung 3months, sa dame din ng kailangan pa asikasuhin once nag move na.

Currently waiting pa po kame ng grant, just trying to research as much as I can po para mejo aware narin sa mga bagay bagay pag binigay na ni Lord ang grant. :) Salamat po. :)

    @supermadi Hi, If you hold a permanent visa, you have to convert your license within 90days. You have to pass 3exams (similar to VIC) - Theory test, hazard perception test and the actual driving exam. Once you get your learners, your Ph license will be invalid so you won’t be able to drive by yourself.

    @supermadi I’m not sure with SA pero with VIC hindi na kinailangan pa yung PIDP. Yung Ph license was enough. Wala namang nakalagay na need ng PIDP dito...

    @supermadi No worries. Hope you’ll get your grant soon. Make sure to upload everything including your medicals so you’ll have a chance for a direct grant. All the best!

    @supermadi, my suggestion is to convert your PH license to SG license para conversion na lang pagdating sa SA kung PR ka.

    Pag hindi PR, kung tama ako, you can use your PH license until mag expire siya or until maging PR ka then convert your SG license to AU license.

    @redph Yun nga po naisip namen ng husband ko. Pero mejo tricky po kasi di namen sure san nagfall ang Visa 489. Kung sakali po kasi, yun po ang igrant samen. By essence naman po is considered sya na permanently living sa AU, pero hindi po kasi clearly stated. Baka po may idea kayo. Thank you po.

    @supermadi, hindi PR ang 489 pareho tayo. We have to apply ng 887 after 2 years para maging PR and dapat with 1 year working experience (minimum yata 35 hours per week?)

    I got my SG license a few months para pag naging PR baka pwede na conversion na lang.

    You can convert your Ph licence kahit 489 visa ka...di ka covered nong 90 days conversion kasi di nga PR so you can use your Ph licence hanggang gusto mo basta di lang expired. I converted mine within 3 months kahit naka 489 pa ako. Eventually icoconvert mo pa din eh. In SA, 1. Take the theory test and hazard perception test, pag pumasa 2. Do the practical driving test( within a timeframe yata). If you can convert your PH to SG licence before coming, wala ng exam and practical driving test, automatic conversion na

    @fgs Thank you po, good to know. Atleast po sure na kame na pwede makapagdrive kahit naka PH license muna. Kaya rin po ako nagtanong dito kasi mejo vague pag 489. Sa bagay tama po kayo, eventually kailangan din naman iconvert din. Yun nga po sana talaga ang pinaka-ideal, maconvert to SG license bago pa makapunta. Sana po makapasa kame. Hehe!

    So I guess wala po magiging problema kung bibili sasakyan kahit under PH license pa po? Wala naman po sila requirement na kailangan converted muna to SA license bago makabili?

    Thank you po sa insights. Big help po.

    @fgs, Thank you. Akala ko kelangan pa mag expire ng SG or PH license bago magconvert kasi that's my understanding sa policy ng AU. Kung pwede na pala agad convert at nagawa nyo mas okay.

    Students, visitors and people working in South Australia on temporary visas can drive with an overseas licence as long as that licence has not expired.

    You can only drive the same type of vehicle as your current overseas licence allows, and you must comply with any conditions on that licence.

    You must carry one of these at all times when driving and show it, along with your passport, to police on request:

    a current overseas licence that is written in English
    a current licence with an English translation or an international driving permit.
    If your licence expires while you are here and you are unable to renew it, you will have to apply for a South Australian driver's licence.

    @supermadi I came here in SA last Dec 2017 and drove my car using my PH licence (although yung car ay pinangalan muna sa name ng sister-in-law ko) until I got my SA licence. I took the Theory test in mid Jan. Then, the Hazard Perception test the following week. Nung naipasa ko yung Hazard Perception, they gave a Temporary Driving Permit with 3 mos. validity. Pero hindi agad ako nakakuha ng Practical Test (VORT) within 3 mos frame. Good thing ay nag-i-issue sila ng Temp Permit for another 3 mos. Sabi ng taga-Service SA ay isang beses lang pde magpa-reissue ng Temp Permit. Anyways, just after a week na ma-reissue yung permit ko ay nag-take ako ng Practical Test. Pag naipasa mo yung practical test, bigyan ka ng examiner ng certificate na dadalin mo sa Service SA para maconvert yung PH licence mo sa SA licence.

    About sa kung pde ka bumili ng car using your PH licence, hindi ako sure kung pde, (parang hindi pde eh). Kasi sa transfer ng car, hahanapin yung Client/Licence number mo. Siguro pag may Temporary Permit ka na baka pde na. Kasi sa Temp Permit ay nakalagay na yung Client Number mo na sya ding Licence number pag may SA driving licence ka na.

    @egroj1002 Thank you po sa info. Mas malinaw na po ngayon. So talagang best option is maconvert na dito palang sa SG habang waiting ng grant. Para if ever palarin talaga, madali na ipaconvert jan. Salamat po. :)

    @supermadi

    Great info from @egroj1002

    I add ko lang. Regarding visa type 489, you can use your valid PH license until TR pa yung status mo. But as soon as you get your PR visa you will need to get the drivers learning permit (as mentioned by egroj1002) and with that you have 12 months to convert it to an AU license.

    Btw with SG drivers license, it's much easier to convert your driver license into a AU SA license. I believe you don't have to take the actual driving exam.

    For more info read this:

    Good luck!

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
