psycho chicken gave me the idea of getting my P's a bit earlier by going interstate
the interstate licenses are valid for 3 months in another state
so what i was thinking are there any things that would stop me from getting a lisence earlier? as i'm going to perth in 4 months and am a QLD every 6 months so is it possible???

NSW you can do it if you have 50 hrs on your L's (which must be logged) and you're 17 or over. The only problem I could see you having is the logbook, as the RTA gives them to you when you do your L's test. If you can get around that I'll let you be my brother for a day while you do the test ;).

Do VicRoads go by how many kms you've done? That seems weird.

I had 87 hours logged when I went to do my test (only need 50 but i got the bug for driving hehe), and the only reason i didnt get 100 outta 100 was cos i screwed up my reverse park (damn i hate those things, havent done one since the test and dont plan to).

Sorry, Ill stop bragging now! :wnc:

I dunno how you'd go with doing this anyway, I mean seriously you can't get away with just faking an address in another state for a day?

In Vic you only need to have held your L's for 6 months.

And you probably couldn't fake an address, speeding fines would go there. So unless you've got a relly dunno.

change your residency... i was thinkin of this over the school holidays...... say u lived in sa for 3 mnths... and then get your license in sa, even though u lived in vic the whole time, but u musnt do this while your at school... cause they can tell uve been there by attendance yet u say u live in sa, so they will smell a rat... helps if u have relies cause all your mail will be sent there too! i got 10 mnths to go so im not to fussed!

I got my South Australian P's because when I finished school I was 17. To get your P's in SA, you need to get your South Australian L's, which is a shitload harder test than the Vic one. Then you either need to do the logbook (if you've got a few months) or do the driving test, which is also a lot more difficult than the Vic test.

But before all of that, you need a living address in SA as they post your licence out to you. If one of the SA members wants to help out :angel: , it would be quite doable. But just remember, if the tester sniffs out that you're Victorian, you'll go broke very quickly...
