2 License's...24 points??
As some of you may know, I moved back to Melbourne a month or so ago. So, with my Qld license I went into Vic Roads to exchange it for a Vic one (like I did in Qld 8 years ago). When I filled in the form they asked if I had ever held a Vic license. Of course, about 9 years ago or so. So they RE-ISSUED my original Vic license and of course I paid for 10 years. So they look at the Qld license which expires in Dec 2004 and add 10 years to that date! They they give me my re-issued Vic license AND give me back my current Qld license. So now I'm holding 2 license's, a Qld one that expires in Dec 2004 and a Vic one that expires in Dec 2014 (11.5 year license...bargin!)
Now I don't have any points against me on either license so theroretically I really have 24 points.
So what I guess I'm asking is:
If I get a speed camera ticket it will come to my registered address of my car and will probably have to go on my Vic license. However if I get pulled over and get the personal touch could I give my Qld license, say I haven't yet changed it over, and cop the points on the Qld license? I know it sounds ok but if they run my rego plate (which is Victorian) will it come up and say my Vic license number? If it did I might have some awkward moments with Mr. Plod trying to explain why I handed over the Qld license.
Any thoughts, suggestions?
