Driver licences for overseas visitors

Email this article to a friend
From 16 March 2015, the following licensing rules for temporary visiting drivers from overseas have been removed
  • The minimum six month waiting period before a temporary overseas visitor can apply for a NSW driver licence
  • The maximum term of a licence of 12 months

Visiting drivers may now apply for a licence with a 1, 3, 5, or 10 year expiry date.

The Q condition code will still remain on the licence issued to a temporary overseas visitor to indicate that evidence of permanent residency has not been provided.
