Actually u dont need an IDP in sydney. Just get the NOC from driving license branch, get it attested from MOFA, get a letter from pakistan consulate in sydney on the basis of NOC and finally present this letter to the RTA...u will then be required to pass only the driver knowledge test and the driving test, provided ur pakistani license is more than 3 yrs old..

I'm sorry but the NOC was kept by the Consulate here in Sydney. It was a simple NOC stating that I'm the genuine holder of this driving licence number: ______, issued on ______ and valid till __________ on traffic police's letter head and stamped by them.

It's impossible for the traffic police branch to be unaware of it, as this is a very common document..when I was there to get it issued, there were quite a few applications for the same lying there. Did you go to the same driving license branch from which your license was issued?

I've discussed the same with concerned traffic police officials,but they told me that IDP would serve the purpose and no need to make NOC.Now I'll try to get NOC asap as per the guidelines provided .

Thanks.

I've got the NOC and driving licence and attestation from MOFA now what is the procedure and the total fee to be paid if I send it through surface mail to Consulate of Pakistan?

I'm not sure of that because i submitted the application form and NOC in person to the consulate. They took 10 days for the letter and charged around $6. It might be better for u to call them. Their website contains the contacts details as well as the form for the letter.

I've recently upgraded my automatic licence to manual and removed C-A restriction - C Class licence is mostly required by employers.

Hi Hassan,

Can you please tell me how to obtain the license in Sydney as i ll be moving to Sydney.

& can you please also explain two points as well for driving licence related

Does anyone have a proper Idea on how to get an Australian driving license.

1- If I have recently made the driving licence from Pakistan e.g 1 months before leaving to Australia. Will there be any benefit of recently made licence or it has no use ? as I read that only license which is old 3 years has benefits. Can you please also explain what kind of benefits are those by having Pakistani license.

2- Is there any benefit of international license from Pakistan in Sydney ?
