The translation of the driving license
Do you want to buy yourself a van and travel miles and miles on the road? You need a valid driving license for Australia. Your Italian license is valid and in theory allows you to drive in Australia for the first three months. In practice, the laws are different from state to state and in case of checks, a more scrupulous official could fine you. To avoid misunderstandings, misunderstandings or incurring penalties, it is better to always have a NAATI certified translation with you, carried out only by certified translators, recognized by the Australian Government.
Further information: "Can I drive with an Italian license in Australia?"
The answer is yes and no. With a temporary visa (tourist, working holiday visa and student visa) your Italian license should be valid for three months down under. However, it is also true that to avoid misunderstandings and possible fines on Australian territory, then you go and explain, it is better to leave organized. With $ 45 before departure, you can save yourself much higher unexpected expenses.
The other options are: apply for an international driving license from your DMV, cost about 70 euros and last one year or convert your Italian license into the Australian one, cost about $ 70 and last three years.
We have tried them all and in our opinion, the translation of the driving license is the fastest, most effective, convenient, economical method!
