CHANGES from January 2014
The rules for foreign licence holders changed on 1st January 2014.
NOW – if you fail a practical driving test – you will need to obtain a Queensland Learner Licence if you want to continue driving in Queensland. This will also allow you to have professional driving lessons to improve your driving skills.
Unfortunately it also means – you are unable to drive in Queensland – using your foreign licence.
Only when you PASS your practical driving test – can you then obtain your Queensland driver licence which will allow you to legally drive in Queensland.
Why did the rules change?
A foreign licence holder who fails their driving test may not have the skills required to drive safely on our roads – and therefore could be a potential risk to other road users. To pass the practical driving test you must demonstrate that you have competent driving skills. When you pass – you can then purchase a Queensland driver licence from Queensland Transport.
