NSW crackdown on foreign driver’s licence-holders with those from India and China to sit test


New South Wales will close a loophole that has allowed drivers to use foreign licences on Australia’s roads while escaping fines and demerit point penalties.

Holders of temporary working or student visas have been able to use their overseas licences indefinitely but from November they will have to swap to a local permit if they have lived in the state for more than three months. 

New rules will also mean motorists from ‘unrecognised’ countries such as China, India and Nepal will soon need to sit a test if they want to get behind the wheel.

Those with driving qualifications from ‘recognised’ countries such as the UK or Germany will be able to transfer to a NSW licence automatically.
