In Australia, driving laws and regulations differ from state to state. Some states will require you to carry an International Licence. However, other states may request you carry your current foreign driver’s licence together with a formal translation of your licence into English.
You are eligible to drive around as long you hold a temporary visa e.g. student visa, visitors visa, tourist visa etc.
You need to ensure your overseas license has not expired and is up-to-date.
Be honest and report your past driving history, Don’t keep other drivers on the road at risk.
If your overseas license is not in English, you need to translate this or alternatively, have the words “International Driving Permit” on it.
