Introduction

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.

You may need to pass a knowledge or driving test, depending on where your overseas licence was issued. 

Note that drivers 75 years or older are required to undergo a medical review, and may have to take a practical driving test.

What you need

  • your proof of identity
  • your overseas licence
    • if not in English, a Transport for NSW-approved translation is required
    • if your licence is not available, an authorisation letter from the issuing country will be required
  • your proof of Australian permanent residency
  • your payment
  • the PDF form – 'Licence Application'. 

If applicable:

  • your contact lenses or glasses
  • a knowledge test
  • a driving test 
  • a 'fitness to drive' medical. 

Note: If you're not a permanent resident or you cannot provide proof of permanent residency, you can apply for a temporary overseas visitor licence

How to transfer

  1. Download and complete the Licence Application – PDF.
  2. Gather your supporting information and documents.
  3. Visit a service centre and provide the information in person.
