If you’re a resident of Australia rather than a visitor, you’re able to drive in NSW on an overseas licence for 3 months. Within these 3 months period however, you’ll need to visit a service center and transfer your overseas licence to a NSW driver licence. You may need to pass a knowledge or driving test, depending on where your overseas licence was issued.
