    HK DRIVERS LICENCE in Australia

    I moved to HK before i got my drivers licence in Australia. Never needed 1 in HK, now im 29 and moving back in a few years. Getting a licence is simple in HK....IF I got it here in hong kong could i by-pass all the stiff regulations back home....????? like passenger restrictions and log books etc......?

    I doubt it. I had a full UK driving license with a clean record and they still made me take a practical test before giving me an Australian license. Anyway, why don't you just google online and find the answer... or ask on an Australian forum!

    There you go - these are the rules for Victoria (as you know, each state is different).

    Hong Kong drivers are NOT exempt from the tests (although interestingly, Singapore drivers are, the only ones from Asia).

    You cannot transfer a HK license to Australia, but you might be able to bypass some of the work and just do a test.

    Depends on the state - NSW informed me I could transfer back there (maybe because I did my test there? albeit back in the '70s!); but in Qld I had to go back on Ls for the full year
