What You’ll Need to Get Your NAATI Driver’s Licence Translation

To get your NAATI driver licence translation, you’ll need to send us a copy of your international driver licence. This can be either a scanned copy or a clear photo taken with your phone. Once we have your international driver licence, we’ll send you the payment details so you can place your order.

All our translations of foreign driver’s licences are done by NAATI translators. This way, we can guarantee that they will be accepted for official purposes in Australia.


Why You Need a Translated Driver’s Licence in Australia

To drive in Australia, you might need to have a translation of your foreign driver’s licence. This is because Australian law requires all drivers to have a valid driver’s licence that’s written in English. So if your driver’s licence isn’t written in English, you’ll need to get it translated before you can start driving Down Under.

Getting your driver’s licence translated is important for another reason as well. If you’re pulled over by the police or involved in an accident, they may ask to see your driver’s licence. If your driver’s licence isn’t written in English, they may not be able to understand it. This could lead to problems, so it’s always best to have a translation of your foreign driver’s licence on hand.

Frequently Asked Questions

To drive in Victoria on an overseas licence, you need to translate your license if it’s not in English.

You may also need to sit a VicRoads drive test.
