Australia laws allow international visitors, migrants and returning citizens to drive in Australia using their valid overseas drivers license. You can do so for up to 6 months in Victoria Australia and up to 12 months in other states in Australia.
However, if your driver license is not in English, you need to have an official English translation for your overseas drivers license.
We can translate your drivers license and give you an official certified English translation. We translate drivers licenses in French, German, Chinese, Spanish, Swedish, Dutch, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Danish and other languages.
It does not matter whether you visit Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or other parts of Australia. We provide our official translation to you online.
In Australia, our English translation can be used by international visitors for the following two purposes:
- To rent a car/van from a vehicle rental company, and
- To show it to the police, if the police stop you on the roads.
Our guarantees: We guarantee that our certified English translations can be used for the above two purposes.
- Vehicle Rental Companies: In the unlikely event that our translation is not accepted by your vehicle rental company in Australia, we will give you a full refund of the translation fee.
- Police Tickets: In the unlikely event that Australia police give you a penalty ticket because they do not accept our translation, you can email us the ticket and we will pay for it. Or we will pay you the same amount.
Please note: If you become a Australia permanent resident or citizen, and you want to convert your home country’s drivers license into an Australia drivers license, then our English translation may not be accepted.
