    @Cassey oo last october pa kami dumating. Nagpalit kasi ako from student to non-pro sa pinas last august kaso walang available na card until nakaalis na ako. So ang hawak ko lang is yung receipt. Will it suffice pag nagpa-convert ako?

    @jedh_g talaga? Yan din recommend ng kakilala ko dito. Matagal na sya nagddrive pero kumuha pa din sya ng instructor kahit 3 sessions lang para daw malaman nya kung tama ginagawa nya haha. Thank you sa tips! :) :)

    @Abby_ ang alam ko dadaan ang LTO ID card holders sa Learners Driving Permit (pagka pass mo sa Theory Test) then pag naipasa mo na practical driving test, full license na. Hindi kasi tayo kasama sa mga countries na direct license conversion privilege. Sa amin dito sa WA, 3 months lang validity from date of Visa date release. Sa Victoria, mas matagal 6 months.

    @Abby_ Tumawag ako sa Vicroads sabi is hindi sufficient yung receipt kailangan ng letter from LTO stating what type of license you hold, date of issuance, expiration, restrictions kung meron at dapat may letterhead ng LTO.

    @jedh_g I can very well relate to your post because I failed my first drive test as well. :) Fortunately, i got it the second time by changing my instructor. I encourage you to have lessons sa test route para mafamiliarize ka sa lugar and you have to know and obey the rules 100% otherwise babagsak ka.
    Dito sa Victoria, kailangan mong magindicate kung saan pupunta yung saksayan if you're doing a reverse parking.

    @Cassey di kasi ako convinced that I failed the test. Yun 2nd Aussie assessor ayaw nya na nag I-indicate Ka ng signal left or right when you reverse. Then one thing that pissed me off was the handing of the score sheet after the test kasi the 3rd section score was incomplete filled up and no scores on the 4th section which I felt nagma madali sya in doing so unlike my 1st American assessor fair enough to discuss details. Plus if we have an option to choose our next driving assessor mas ok sana kasi mahal din ang 79 AUD sa pag book ng test.

    @SAP_Melaka visa grant date ang reference bro valid for 3 months here in WA, other states naman like Victoria, 6 months valid ang LTO driver's license. If sa Singapore ka galing, direct convert full license na agad.

    @jedh_g Aahh, 2 ang assessor niyo? Inexplain ba kung bakit ka nafail? Yung sa akin naman, incomplete yung sheet pero inexplain kung bakit fail. Oo nga eh surprise na lang kung sino makuha mong assessor. I think somewhat advantageous nga kung may kasama kang instructor from reputable driving schools lalo na pag alam nilang maayos ang turo.

    @Abby_ Ang isa pang option is letter from consulate dito sa Australia na may letterhead din nila confirming from LTO that you have a valid license in the Phils. The letter should also include the status, type of license, validity and restrictions if there are any.

    @Cassey 1st assessor American guy - 1st take then 2nd assessor Aussie guy. One assessor per take ako and to sum up nakaka dalawa take na ko. I shall make my revenge on my 3rd haha!

    Explained naman pero better yun American mag explain plus much clear ang instructions nya. Unlike dun sa Aussie unacceptable talaga paliwanag nya as in nagpadaan ako ng pedestrian he took it against me eh nakapass thru na yung mag mom and small son sa roundabout. Sabi go for it pa rin daw. Ako Naman courteous and safety first.

    @Abby_ ang alam ko dadaan ang LTO ID card holders sa Learners Driving Permit (pagka pass mo sa Theory Test) then pag naipasa mo na practical driving test, full license na. Hindi kasi tayo kasama sa mga countries na direct license conversion privilege. Sa amin dito sa WA, 3 months lang validity from date of Visa date release. Sa Victoria, mas matagal 6 months.

    Hello @jedh_g concerning the validity of license, it will start from the grant letter or from your initial entry date?
    @SAP_Melaka from initial entry date ang reference.

    @Abby_ Nagdadrive ka na ba rito? May PDF pala ako kung pano sila magassess dito sa Vic kung gusto mo ng copy. Avoid doing 2 critical errors/immediate termination error kasi pababalikin ka kaagad sa Vicroads Center at hindi na tatapusin yung test.

    Check mo na rin tong video para may idea ka sa drive test:

    @jedh_g Ahh i see. Just charge it to experience. Tinanong ko rin yan sa instructor ko before, ang sabi sa akin, pag wala sila sa tamang tawiran at hindi pa sila nakakatawid at nasa may footpath/sidewalk/shoulder of the road, wag mong pagbigyan pero pag nakababa na sila at nakastart ng magcross sa road then give way. Delikado yung pagtawid nila lalo na sa roundabout pa,hehe With regards to your post on roundabout, always give way to the vehicles on your right and to those who are already in the roundabout.

    Pag shared zone naman, always give way to pedestrians. :)

    @engineer20 this is true. My PR visa was released August 2016 (I arrived in WA October 2016). I was advised by DOT during my application of photo card that I can still use my Philippine driving license until November 2016. Now, after I passed my sit-in theory test, I now got my Learner's Permit only. Need to still pass the practical driving test to finally acquire my full driver's license.
