Are you a temporary visa holder driving in NSW?

Have you been driving around NSW on your drivers licence from home and aren’t sure when you need to swap over?

If so, this article is for you.

Did you know that if you hold a temporary Australian visa, you must convert to a NSW driver license if you intend to reside in this state for at least six months?

Also, did you know that you may be stripped of your driving privileges permanently, if you accrue 13 demerit points, or are convicted of serious driving offences, including speeding, drug and alcohol.

You can find more details about these rules in this overseas license policy change document from NSW government. Overseas Licence Policy Change  2 December 2023.pdf
