Default Covert overseas driving license to full license in NSW

Hello,

I have an expired overseas driving license (expired week ago) with issue date of 6/2015 and for some reason Iíll not be able to obtain a renewal as government services are out of duty during our endless lockdown status..

I was going to move to Sydney in couple of weeks and I would like to know if itís acceptable to apply for the full license in NSW using my expired license with issue date over 3 years, or i need to start the route from the very first beginning (L, P1, P2, full license)?

Any input will be appreciated.

Thanks!

You haven't specified which country is your current Driving License from, because that matters if you progress through all levels or if you are exempted.

Generally, you maybe exempted if you license expire not more than 5 years ago, if it is issued by one of the recognised Foreign Licensing Authority.

Please check this page for more details (Under section --> Exemptions from Knowledge and Driving Tests)

All the best..!
