Car Licence International Licence Transfer

If you currently hold an international drivers licence or permit, you are obligated by law to get a South Australian drivers licence or permit within 3 months of becoming a perminant resident in South Australia. Making this transition is something Accustom Driving School can help with.


Eligibility Requirements

Depending on the country/currency of your international licence it may be advised that before you can get your Australian licence you'll need to pass these tests ( which are undertaken at your local Service SA office first):

- Theory Test (Give way diagrams & multiple choice law questions) when you pass the test, a temporary driving permit will be issued for a period of 3 months. You can practice this test online Here
- Hazard Perception Test - you can practice this test here.
- Practical driving test - this test can be done with Accustom Driving School (please keep in mind this practical test needs to be completed before your temporary driving permit expires) once you have completed your practical driving assesment you will then be given a certificate of competency.
