    Foreign Driver License in Australia

    Will it benefit me to have a Pakistani drivers license in Australia if I am moving on a PR visa? or will I have to still give driving test there to gain Australian license ?

    yes, you will need to give test to gain your Australian license (issued by state in which you are residing) , Pakistani issued license is not recognized by them although I think that it can be used as temporary license for few months in beginning (I am not sure about this) however the license from Pakistan will not entitle you for a Australian license you will have to pass the driving test in Australia and apply for the learners license etc

    You can surely use it temporary for fisrt three months of arrival but later it will go invalid and you could be possibly charged if you further show it up to Australian roads police. before the three months duration pass way u need to pass the computer written leraners test which is valid 10yr license and obey by all its guidelines. If you want to pass and get full australian drivers license then you need to first prove your license's originality by attesting it through consulate of Pakistan, who would enquire it through govt of pakistan. Only then you are eligible for writing full driving license.

    After that you need to pass joystick computer exam and the driving test. usually many people dont make it easy with diving test because ausratlian road laws are very differnt to asian countries.

    Yes, you must have to give test for having license in australia.Because you have a pakistani licensed and it is not valid in australia.But if you have international licensed then it will be work.
