Driver licence in Victoria

Temporary residents

You can drive in Victoria without a Victorian driver’s licence for the duration of your stay providing you have a valid International Driver Permit or overseas licence.

For more information on licence requirements for temporary visa holders, visit the VicRoads website.

Permanent residents

You must apply for a Victorian driver’s licence within three months of arriving (or from the time a permanent visa was issued to you).

To change over to a Victorian licence, you will need to undertake:

  • a road law knowledge test (computer-based, multiple choice)
  • a hazard perception test
  • an eyesight test and
  • a driving assessment.

In some cases, you may be exempt from the tests. For more information about the test and exemptions, visit the VicRoads website.
