    anyways, dumating na ung transfer registration ng auto ko...hehe...after sa pangungulit ko sa DOT thru email at query online...hahaha

    **iba pala dito sa OZ, kahit wala kang dalang car registration e oks lang na magdrive...since "high tech" naman sila at "babarilin" lang ung plaka mo e alam na nila ung record ng auto mo... unlike sa atin na kailangan laging nasa sasakyan ung car registration to verify ung auto mo... :-)

    Para sa mga andito sa Perth City, meron ba sa inyo nagtake ng PDA sa CBD area? Kumusta naman ang exam nyo? Mukhang nagkamali ata ako ng desisyon na sa city area ako nagddriving lesson. Sabi nila madami daw sumasabit sa PDA dito sa city, dapat pala nagsuburb na lang ako. Nakaka-5sessions na ako sa driving lesson pero dami ko pa rin mali, sobrang nakakalito ang road rules dito.

    Another thing, gusto ko na sana bumili ng sasakyan para kahit papano makapagpractice ako, pwede na kaya kahit L licence pa lang meron ako? Ang problema ko lang ay paano pala ako magppractice kung wala naman akong kasamang nakafull licence. Hahaha…

    Ngayon ko lang nasimulan panoorin yung videos dito. Ang fashown nila noong unang panahon! Hehe. Pero pansin ko mabagal pa sila magpatakbo ng sasakyan sa videos na 'to. Ngayon kasi kahit inner roads mabilis na eh, diba nga by 50 by default unless otherwise specified. Hindi pa tuloy ako sanay kase sa atin pag pumasok ka na sa subdivision usually mga 30 ka na lang eh.

    Kaya sa case ng mga Pinoy migrants na wala pang DL sa Pinas, I think mas practical na hindi na kukuha ng DL sa Pinas. Doon nalang sa Au
    Ang advantage po kasi pag may licence ka na from pinas, kasi pag dating mo dito sa Au e pwede ka na magdrive same as Au Class C licence.
    Pwede ka din uminom ng alcoholic drinks basta less than 0.05 blood alcohol content (BAC) reading pag na Random Blood Test ka ng pulis (but I'm not encouraging na uminom pag nag ddrive)

    Pag wala kang licence from Pinas at pag kumuha ka ng licence dito sa Au at nakapasa ka sa exam e ang ibibigay sau "L" plate or learner which means kelangan mo ng kasama (yung kasama mo kelangan full licence na. or Class C) pag nag ddrive. At hindi pwedeng uminom ang driver pati yung kasama. Speed is limited to 80kph lang.

    May restrictions din po ba sa pasahero kapag Learner palang? Like bawal magsakay ng bata or buntis?

    Hi po, balak ko po kasi kumuha ng AU license tanong ko lng kung pwede na ako sa full license i'm holding a PR visa may Ph Driver's license din po ako . So yun Balak ko n po mag take ng written exam any tips? TIA!

    Hello po.. curious lang, how is the traffic jam in australia particularly melbourne or sydney? Tolerable po ba? How long does it usually take to get to one place to another? Example: from house to the office/school, from house to grocery/church/hospital. Let's say you're using your own car. Thank you

    @emefei when they say heavy traffic it usually just means it's slow moving, unlike in Manila where it often means it's a standstill

    tolerable sya. allow about 15 to 30 mins allowance pag mga less than 50km ang layo mo within the speed limit.. freeway is your best option sa mga big cities. ang traffic ay free flowing lang (around 40kph minsan 60kph on a 100kph zone) so okay lang.. pag meron kang city map, pwede mo pag aralan ang mga looban na daan para medyo mapabilis ka ng konti.
  • C_hiLLC_hiLL AdelaidePosts: 188Member
    This is very informative! Nakakaba ung pagmerge sa freeway at yung curved lines nila sa intersections sa video (dahil luma na yung video ata at hindi na ganung ang intersections ngayun) but the video totally prepared you in being a defensive driver. Any links of driving books for reference?
