Philippine non-prof driver's license or International driver's license

What's Hot

Question lang, ano ba mas maganda dalhin pagdating AU. Non-prof driver's license o International driver's license? Any difference in terms of pag-papaconvert to AU drivers license o parehas din ang process?
Kasi uuwi ako sa pinas for 4 days only. Iniisip ko kung renew ko lang ang expired kong phil drivers license(non-prod) o pa-convert ko pa ito into International. Thanks!

    Reply to @bmac:
    Yes that is true, under 457 visa: just use ur philippine license. Sayang lang ang fee for the international driver's license, ganun din naman and may expiry pa ung international. When u become an resident that is the time u will be required ng Oz license.

    Reply to @emjdee: I think po pag naka temporary visa like 475 is pwede mo pa rin gamitin yung DL mo sa Oz. Yung required lang ata nila talga na magkaroon ng Oz DL is yung mga PR. Yun din po ang sabi sakin ni sir @sohc naka 475 visa din sya sa SA.
    @emjdee 475 din po ba kayo? saang state po kayo?

    yup pwede pa din yung Phil DL. Kahit papano may advantage din ang pagiging temp visa lalo na sa work na nagrerequire ng unrestricted DL.

    @hotshot... good question...

    eto ang nakalagay sa WA dept of transport: for Permanent visa holders
    If you hold a permanent visa, you can continue to drive on your overseas licence until you have resided in WA for three months.

    eto naman po nakalagay sa NSW:


    If you are an Australian permanent resident or hold a permanent visa under the Commonwealth Migration Act 1958 and you intend to stay in NSW, you are not considered to be a visitor. As such, you are allowed to drive in NSW on a current overseas licence for a maximum of three months after arriving in Australia. If you wish to continue driving, you must obtain a NSW driver licence.

    Reply to @lock_code2004: hmmm....sa pagkakabasa ko sa NSW parang hindi cumulative. pero tama...ang weird nga nun kung saglit ka lang sa initial entry tapos babalik ka after more than 3 months. sana reset na lang ang bilang ng 3 months every time na lalabas ka ng oz. hehehehe

    just read this from DIAC's brochure: "Beginning Life in Australia"

    If you are a permanent resident and have a current driver's licence from another country, in English or with an official translation, in most states and territories you are allowed to drive for your first three months after arrival.

    Note: In Tasmania, the three month period begins when you are granted your permanent residency visa, NOT when you arrive in Australia.

    if pr ka dapat kuha ka talaga ng australian license, pwede rin magamit yung international license kaso lang 1 year lang yun then kuha ka rin ng australian DL. After mo mapasa yung DKT (Drivers Knowledge Test), dapat mag enroll ka sa driving school dito bago ka take ng driving test, madami rin naman pinoy instructor dito. May mga kilala akong after mapasa yung DKT nag test kaagad, yun bagsak. Kaya ako nakapag 6 hours ako ng lesson before nag take, kaya 1 take lang.

    Aus. $ 50 na yung bayad sa test, tapos 160 yung rent sa car na gagamitin sa test, pero kung may friend kang magpa hiram ng car, okay lang naman.

    sa pagkakaalam ko po....pag SG-license, derecho convert na lang po to AU license. pero depende pa din ata kung gaano na katagal yung SG license nyo.

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.
