Driving in Australia
Foreign natives must hold their national driver’s license in addition to an international driver’s license to drive in Australia.
People drive on the left-hand side of the road in Australia. You may need some time to get accustomed to it if you’re coming from a country where people drive on the right-hand side of the road.
It may not be useful to have your own car shipped to Australia. According to the special rules that apply in the country (safety measures, color of car headlights, left-hand driving etc.), it is somehow easier and simpler to find a car of your own directly in Australia.
Note that you’ll have to have your car plates registered. A yearly fee applies, including compulsory third party insurance.
