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

edited August 2014 in General
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.

    How about po for 475visa? Pede po b ang phil driver's license? Thanks..

    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.

    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.

    How about if your holding singapore driving license, need mo pa rin bang pumasa ng DKT or it can be converted automatically into ausie license?

    Kuha ng dkt exam is 42 kung pumasa 22 then per hour sa lesson is 45, then driving exam is 50..yung lahat na magasto depende kung ilang take saka ilang hours sa driving lesson.
  • atchinoatchino Sydney

    @Alexcons

    Driving lesson per hour is about $45-$70

    Depende kung gano kabilis matuto misis mo.
    Required to take computer exam muna bago yung
    Take the sample exam as much as you can hangang makabiado mo na ang sagot hehehe...
    AFter passing hte computer exam, at saka ka palang pwede magpa schedule ng actual driving test.

    Kung more than 25 yrs old na misis mo, hindi na kailangan ng log book.

    Kung below 25 yrs old, required ang log book to apply for a drivers license.
    Log book is yung driving lessons. Everytime na mag driveka, sign lang ng instructor or someone na kasama nya na mag drive na may professional driver license.

    hello, sa mga kumuha ng lisensya dito na merong overseas license for more than 3 years, after ba ng driving test ay full license agad ang binigay? if yes, may mga requirements ba na kailngan ipakita bukod sa lisensya at resibo para patunayan na > 3 years ka na nagddrive sa pinas? iniisip ko kasi kung worth it ba talaga ang hassle para kumuha ng certification sa LTO o baka hindi naman talaga required at tanggapin na ang lisensya..

    http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/licensing/newtonsw/international_drivers.html
    You must provide documentary proof of the first issue date of your overseas licence if the period for which you have held the licence is to be recognised for the issue of a NSW licence. Before you first attend the motor registry, you may wish to obtain a letter from the licence issuing authority (on their letterhead) or from your relevant consulate or diplomatic office, confirming your licence details, including the first issue date.

    Di na kailangan pare...nandun naman sa phil dl kung kelan yun first issue...alam na yun nla dito. Saka pag fill up mo ng form may tanong din namn dun kung ilang years kna nag drive sa atin.

    @jaero Kumuha ako ng Certificate of "FIRST Issuance" sa LTO.

    In my situation kasi, nag pa renew na ko ng LTO/phil drivers license.
    Hindi naka indicate dun sa license yung date na una ka nag ka professional lciense.

    Di ko lang alam kung sa bagong license ng LTO is naka indicate dun kung kailan ka una nag apply ng prof license.

    So kailangan ko kumuha ng certificate of FIRST Issuance sa LTO as proof na more than 7yrs na ko nag drive .. para direct to Profesional license kaagad ang ibigay dito sa Australia.

    Note: Di ako sure sa 7 yrs yata ang required to go straight to Prof lciense. di ko na matandaan. Basta may minimum number of yrs sila required na may prof license ka overseaes para qualified ka to go striaght to profesional drivers in Austrlaia once na ipasamo yung actual driving test.


    Once na naipasa ko yung actual driving test, pinakita ko yung license ko at yung letter of First Issuance together with the applciation form.

    Kinuha nila nila yung Certificate of First Issuance.

    sabi ng iba dito nakikita naman daw yung year ng first issuance sa DL# natin sa pinas. so requirement po ba talaga yung letter from LTO or optional lang?

    Yung driver license number mo yata nakaindicate sa yung first issue. Pero nakakalam lang nun ssystem na yun eh sa LTO.

    Kso mahirap explain pa yan sa RTA officer kung pano naging date ng issue yung driver license number mo not unless pinpoy yung RTA officer.

    Or may training sila kung pano interpret yung driver license number ng ibat ibang country.


    Anyway, siguro depnde sa RTA officer kung pumapayag kaagad.

    Pwede mo subukan na walang certificate pero pano kung manghingi ng proof?


    In my experience, Para safe at walang hassle, kumuha na ko at sinama ko sa pag apply ng professional drivers license.
