    @dantz15 if you have SG licence, automatic convert na to Au licence without the theory test and practical driving..total cost around 300-400AUD( excluding the DL fee depending on the number of years validity you wanted)

    @dantz15 pero ang ginagawa ng mga ibang automatic convert, nageenrol pa rin for few days/hours of driving lessons to familiarize right hand driving and road rules..beating the red light can cost you $450 and 3 demerit points..

    sa lahat ba ng states yan? sa NSW kasi ako balak pumunta.
    in NSW, SG license are recognize

    http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roads/licence/moving-to-nsw.html#recognised_countries

    Recognised countries

    Roads and Maritime Services recognises car and rider licences from certain countries. There are two categories of recognised countries – A and B.

    If you are applying for a heavy vehicle licence (classes LR, MR, HR, HC or MC) you must pass the relevant knowledge and driving tests, even if you hold an equivalent class licence from a recognised country.

    Recognised Country A: If you hold a licence from one of these countries, you do not have to pass knowledge and driving tests when applying for a NSW car (class C) or rider (class R) licence:

    Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Croatia, Denmark
    Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guernsey
    Ireland, Isle of Man (licences issued since 1 April 1991), Italy, Japan, Jersey, Luxembourg
    Malta (licences issued or renewed since 2 January 2004), Netherlands, New Zealand, (except for paper licences), Norway, Portugal
    Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States of America

    @bangs08 actually yung cert na yun wala naman sa list ng requirements pero lately sa mga nakikita kong nagpaconvert e nagprovide sila ng ganun. How to convert PH to SG License Requirements

    Pwede mo siguro i-try, pag tinanong ka kung kelan ang first issue ng license mo just inform them kung kelan or ituro mo sa license mo mismo:
    License no.: N03-xx-xxxxxx

    Yung number after ng N03 un ang year ng first issuance. Dati naman daw pwede yung ganun e. Not sure lang ngayon.

    I converted my Ph to Sg DL - theory test lang. When I moved to Sydney I was able to convert my Sg direct to Au DL. Dito na lang ako nagpractice magdrive. It's not that difficult!

    HIndi na kailangan ng cert from LTO to convert to SG license unless na magdrive ka talaga ng kotse sa SG. Pag walang cert, ang nilalagay na date of license issuance is on the exact date of SG license approval. Ang purpose kasi ng cert from LTO is para makakuha ka ng discount sa insurance and also kung anong license class and ibibigay sayo when you have a car and or driving in SG. Based sa grant date of license yung insurance cost. Pag 5 years or more, 50% discount kasi. Hope this helps..

    @zapped ah thanks for the info. Yung conversion for SG, hindi ba another purpose din siguro yung para malaman nila kung need mo pa magdisplay ng P-Plate? Need nila maverify yung more than 2 years na yung license db.
