If you currently hold a Learners License from another state in Australia e.g. NSW, VIC or QLD, you are able to have driving lessons in the ACT and then attempt a one off Government Driving Assessment but cannot use the ACT Log Book Method. If you pass this Assessment first time, you will receive an ACT Provisional License (which has no special speed restrictions like some other states). If you do not pass, you must go through the process of obtaining an ACT Learners License before attempting another Government Assessment or the option you would then have of the ACT Log Book System.
If you have a Learners License from another country, it will unfortunately not be recognised in the ACT.
If you have a Full License from another country, you are able to have driving lessons in the ACT and then attempt a one off Government Driving Assessment but cannot use the ACT Log Book Method. If you pass this Assessment first time, you will receive a full ACT License.
Before booking a Driving Assessment, you should read the requirements needed by going to the Government website at Overseas and Interstate Licence Information.
People with a current license from the following countries will be required to pass a knowledge assessment but will not be required to undertake a practical driving assessment.
