Taking your test abroad

Planet Earth is a village these days and some Brits like David Barnett are taking their tests overseas.

“I have just become a biker and I am living in Brisbane at the moment, although I’m from London. I am taking lessons now, with plans to come back to the UK, but I’m worried that I will have to retake my test all over again.”

The good news for David is that Australia is designated for driving licence exchange purposes, so he will be able to exchange his full Australian motorcycle licence for a UK licence without the need to pass any additional theory or driving tests.
