Took me three takes but I got it finally, second time was my fault, I jumped a red light that was hidden behind a stationed Truck (DAMN) but managed getting a 10 year full license on March 7th, 2012.

Ha ha, Shel, you should never attempt to drive in the Middle East then. In UAE, the hard shoulder is a lane and he who has the biggest car, has right of way! And tailgating is a way of life! The Aussies are excellent drivers in comparison.Congrats, I was terrified of driving in Australia, so didn't, because they're all mad and appear to pay no attention to lights and road rules lol.
Thanks Anjali!Thanks coolsnake
The steps are take 2 comp tests, make sure you take the mock tests on their website (vicroads), all questions that come in IQ tests are there. The hazard test is basic, nothing difficult, i got 80% in one and i think 94% in the other, cant remember exact figure
For wrong spelling you better get a proof that it is your because they do create a fuss, my license was made in 1993-94 and it had my maiden name, my passport had a different surname they asked me a few things, good thing was that i was carrying my old passport and my new passport had that number which serves as a proof both people are the same, i think you have to get a letter form transport authority or maybe an affidavit. As for joining a course etc, it can be expensive, you will burn a big hole in your pocket, I took just 40 mins session and paid 50$ for the same and then you have to have certain number of hours of driving with someone who has a valid DL etc etc, make sure you read the rules on vicroads site. it is better to just get an affidavit from India or some letter form transport authority.
Yeah I transferred my Indian DL, it isn't really transferring but if you have a full license you do not have to go through the 2 stages of getting the license. you straight away take the 2 computer tests and then the drivers test.
The comp tests are valid for on year, i think, not sure, you can take as many tests as you like, no limit on that one
In Victoria you get 6 months to convert your international lichen to Aussie license, each state has their own rules. supposedly victoria is the most relaxed. If you do not pass the drivers test then you can not drive, cant be simpler than that, other option is to get a learner's license where you can drive with a valid license holder (while sitting next to you)
Congrats Anjali! Looks like drivers license is treated more or less like a life time achievement! It was tough for me to get a UAE license as well.anj1976 said:
