Visiting or moving to NSW
Everything you need to know about driving in NSW as a visitor from another state or country, or converting your licence if you move to NSW.
In this section...
If you're a visitor to NSW, you can drive on your current licence, as long as it hasn't been suspended or disqualified, and you follow the NSW road rules.
If you’re moving to NSW from another part of Australia or another country, you’ll need to get a NSW driver or rider licence. You can use your existing licence for up to three months, but after that you must have a NSW licence.
If you are moving from NSW to reside in another state, you can drive on your NSW licence for three months, but after that you must transfer your licence to your new jurisdiction.
