Hello po,
Musta naman po ang experience nyo sa pag drive. Particularly in Sydney or Melbourne, as I am planning to visit there for my initial entry date. Right hand drive kasi dyan di ba.

Experience ko sa pag drive (LHD) ay nasa 12 years na din both manual and automatic.

Share naman po kayo ng experiences nyo.

    @PogingNoypi
    Hi sir. Pwede ka po magdrive dito for 3 months, within those 3 months dapat po mag-apply ka na for local driver's license. Medyo iba lang po experience sa umpisa, pero kapag nasanay ka na po madali na din since experienced driver na naman po kayo. :) Take it easy lang po sa umpisa and you'll be fine. :)

    Hi I'm from canberra pero may similarity malamang sa sydney ang road rules kasi NSW ang sydney. Iwasan ang speeding check always the speed limit may mga speed camera na naka abang minsan. look for the blind spot and mirror then use indicator kapag lilipat sa kabilang lane. Mostly here may roundabout, right hand drive dito. Dipende pala sa state minsan may kanya kanyang standard ang roads at traffic rules. Keep left always tsaka ka lang mag right lane kapag mag oovertake ka. ingat sa mga busy area lalo na sa pedestrian line marking you have to give way. Please aware sa mga give way at stop sign. check always the line marking sa roads. check the speed limit when you enter school zone lalo kapag oras ng school. Kapag nakarating ka sa state pumunta ka sa office nagreregulate ng roads rules (parang LTO sa atin) bumili ka ng road rules booklet at basahin mabuti.

    Good luck

    Pwedeng-pwede ka mag drive dito, PogingNoypi! for the first 3 months basta meron kang valid licence from the Philippines o kung saan pa man. Just make sure na before mag expire yung 3 months mo e makakuha ka na ng driver's licence. Be familiar sa mga road signs at sabi nga ng ibang forumers, iba dito compared sa atin. If you can drive manual car, better take an open licence para kahit manual man or automatic e pwede mo i-drive.

    Good luck!!

    Its advisable na magkaroon ng car sa Australia lalo na kung may family ka. Kung single ka naman at nasa city ka puede cguro na wala kang sasakyan pero kung mahilig ka sa nightlife at lakwatsero ka kapag weekend kailangan mo ng saksakyan para you can manage your time at madali ka dumating sa pupuntahan mo or else mauubus oras mo sa kakaantay ng transportation like bus, train, ferry boat plus travel time.

    cheers

    @Pogingnoypi
    I've been driving in PH for more than 10 years na din.

    Tinuruan ako ng mga kapatid ko while I was in Sydney about road rules. Gaya nga ng sabi ni totoyOz kailangan mag give way kapag may tatawid sa pedestrian lane unlike sa Pinas tao ang mag give way muntik ako magkamali ng isang beses dyan.

    Mas madali kung automatic muna lalo na RHD dito. Nag drive ako ng manual once nung binigyan ako ng temp car ng Honda since kailangan kong iwan yung car ko, medyo nakakapanibago namatay isang beses yung engine haha.

    Laging kanan ang una mong titingnan kapag may mga intersection and roundabout. Give way ka lagi kapag may sasakyan sa kanan.

    Strict din sila dito sa speed usually 60kph ang standard, minsan 50kph. Mahal kapag nasita ka ng overspeeding. Dito sa SA sabi nila it's a $300 fine pero sa office namin if mahuli ka ng speeding using company car doble ang fine, that's $600 from your pocket.

    I suggest magpaturo ka muna kahit 2 days lang mahirap na magkamali sa kalsada.

    About sa mga parking makikita mo sa mga kalsada na may nakalagay na 1P, 2P or 3P ibig sabihin 1P=1hr. Kapag may nakalagay na "1P ticket" ibig sabihin may bayad, maghuhulog ka lang ng coin sa ticket machine then lalagay mo sa windshield ng car yung ticket.

    Malaking tulong din ang gps, I'm using tomtom australia on my iPhone.

    Also my nakalagay na day like mon-fri or sat-sun then may oras din like 8am-6pm. Kapag lampas na sa oras libre na. Magingat sa mga sign na to nadale ako once ang pagkakaalam ko sa Adelaide halos lahat ng parking libre na after 6pm. Nagpark ako ng 7:00 pagbalik ko may ticket sa windshield! pagtingin ko sa sign 1/4P 8am-8pm anyday

    Eto ang nakuha kong ticket, hopefully this would be the first and last.

    Hindi din ako nakapag drive ng solo sa Sydney. After two weeks lumipat na ko ng SA since SA sponsored ako.

    One time at work kinailangan ko ng pumunta sa isang branch. Sabi ng boss ko you can take the camry sabay bigay ng key. Halong excitement at kaba ang nararamdaman ko nun kasi eto na ang actual solo driving na company car pa ang dala.

    Nagdrive ako ng 70kms and thank God wala naman naging problema basta ingat at focus lang.

    @sohc Thanks for those tips.

    Mabuti na lang medyo nasanay na rin ako about the right traffic rules dito sa disyerto (as in, stop kung red kahit walang tumatawid and no changing lanes on solid lines dahil na-twohundredan ako dun).

    Nakakalito nga lang yung manual sa RHD dahil yung primera nasa left-most side pa rin.

    Share ko lang link, drill-down na lang to see sample driving test/quizzes around Oz:

    http://www.immi.gov.au/living-in-australia/settle-in-australia/to-do-first/apply-drivers.htm
    https://www.service.transport.qld.gov.au/rrtexternal/

    Konting tip din:
    - The most speeding fine I heard of is 300+, depende kasi how many kph over sa speed limit. Up to six points pa bawas pag long-weekend.
    - Hwag mag convoy, rely on GPS or refidex. May pinoy families na na-involved sa tragic accident noon sa Syd, a sad end to their out of town trip.
    - Strictly follow right of way. Bawal ang sumingit, kahit sa parking - first in best dressed. Cause din yan nang road rage.
    - Sa mga first timers sa outback, be very patient when caught behind B-Doubles/B-Triples/Road Trains. Takes about 20 secs to safely overtake a B-double, that is if your car is in good shape.

    Just make sure you review the rules, kasi sinusunod yan talaga dito.

    Another tip on driving athe Outback/NW Qld, there are "overtaking opportunities" signage na nakapost on the side of the road na nakalagay either 5km, 3km or 300m ahead of you. Eto yung 2 lanes na slow moving vehicles should keep left unless overtaking. So when caught behind road trains, just wait for the overtaking opportunities. Kasi kung bagong driver lang talagang nakakakaba to overtake a road train. Unless the road train driver gives you a signal to overtake him.

    Question lang po. We are on 475 Visa and my husband just got his Non-Prof driving license on Oct 2,2012. We will be arriving in Perth on Nov 9. Will he be allowed to drive? Although he might not drive that soon, just curious lang if he will be able to use his Non-Prof DL? Thanks!

    hi...

    i'm asking on behalf of my hubby na kaka-land lang dyan last mid-March para maghanap ng work...
    over na kasi ang visa namin for the 3-month period, so start sya from scratch, right?.. how much kaya ang magagastos nya (estimate) in getting a license. experienced driver naman siya though lefthand drive.

    thanks
