First to drive a car when you arrive in Australia? You're not alone.

To begin with, I had attached a file for you to read in starting out as a new Aussie driver from the Philippines. Hit some queries and I shall be willing to answer. Cheers mate!

    Hi Guys, we also plan mo moving to Perth this coming Mid March and the plan is to get a DL as soon as possible
  • jedh_gjedh_g Perth WAPosts: 1,369Member, Moderator
    @twenty_wan depends on what country of origin your last driving license was acquired. Please check this out. As not all countries (like the Philippines) has a direct conversion of driving license if you're not in the listed country. In the case of Singapore for example, they could convert their driver license directly and need not undergo further theory and practical test.
