    Depende sa state eh, sa SA you have to take written road test and hazard perception test, tapos practical driving test. sa QLD, written road test and practical driving test lang. If you are PR holder, you have to convert your foreign license within 3 mos period but some state can extend it due to COVID.

    i have been driving around with no issues on a Philippine Driver's License for some time now (valid till 2023)... kung matagal na po kayo nag-drive sa Pinas, I would suggest to get somebody to teach you on the basics of driving po dito kasi nakakalito (right handed kasi ang cars nila dito, so on the left lane sila)

    pic from the AU website to inform that our overseas license can be used here, I would suggest you carry a copy of this wherever you go:

    link is found here:
    https://info.australia.gov.au/information-and-services/transport-and-regional/driving-with-an-overseas-licence

    please check this youtube video for a bit on how to drive around in AU :)

    all the best! :)

    @DonnaMay Just take note that you can use you PH Driver's license as long as it's still valid or unless PR kana.. Once PR, you need to get AU driver's license within 3 months from the PR approval date..

    hello, question po about getting NSW driver's license. We arrived here in Sydney last Apr29 as PR. Accdg to service center, we can still use our drivers license 6 mos from arrival. But then, we took DKT last July 2020. Can we still use our phil license without full license na kasama or considered Learner's na kami therefore need na may kasama na full license?

    If PR, you can drive with your foreign license for 3 months and need to convert during that period. Am not sure if there has been changes because of Covid but the Service NSW website still says 3 months.

    https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/transfer-overseas-driver-licence
    If you're a resident of Australia rather than a visitor, you're able to drive in NSW on an overseas licence for 3 months. Within this 3 month period however, you'll need to visit a service centre and transfer your overseas licence to a NSW driver licence.

    Pag foreign license holder at nag take ng DKT, you can still drive with your foreign license within the 3 month period. Pero you are required to bring along a full license holder during your practical exam because if you don't pass, the examiner will not allow you to drive your car home.
    I am not aware of any changes with this Covid thing, so sa case mo po, I would suggest that you take your practical driving exams soonest kasi lampas na po kayo sa 3 month period as of July 29.
