Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

    Hi Po! Ask mo lang, may bearing po ba kung kakakuha ko lang ng Drivers license ko sa PH tapos papaconvert ko na agad to Sg DL? or need ko pang mag antay ng specific months or year bago mag convert.. salamat po sasagot.

    @loucas_11 Dapat na-issue yung license mo before na-issue yung first Singapore pass (EP/Spass) mo. Otherwise, hindi mo ata pwede ma-convert. Ito yung alam kong rule last 2015. Di ko sure kung meron changes since then.

    @loucas_11 tama si @naitx kailangan una kang nagkaroon ng PH DL bago ka nagkapass sa SG.

    Hi kabayans! I heard n even though direct conversion and SG DL to AU DL, Probationary license parin daw ang grant sau pag less than 1 year and SG DL (kc daw pag probi ka sa SG, probi karin sa AU) please correct me if I am wrong.
    For my case, sa Dec 2018 mag 1 year ang SG DL license ko. Initial entry nmin ay sa Oct 2018 max (Victoria). Any suggestions para makaiwas sa P2 probationary license? Thank you in advance! :)

    Hello, update ko lang po itong forum topic na to sa mga gusto magconvert ng PH DL to SG DL. Pwede po pala mag enrol online (account opening) and book online ng BTT. Not sure if bago lang yun pero pwede na sya sa website ng Ubi branch.

    @Hendro Check the state you are applying for the DL. I think it really doesn't matter because even if you have P plates, you can still drive unlike L plates. Also, no need for you to do the written exam and practical (though depends on the state. Here in QLD, if you have held it for less than one year (recognized countries), you avoid the written but you need to do the practical). Mabilis naman ang 1 year to have the open licence.
