What if I have a medical condition?

What if I have a suspended, disqualified or cancelled licences/learner permit?

You can’t get a Victorian driver licence or learner permit if your interstate or New Zealand licence/learner permit is suspended or cancelled, or if you’re disqualified from driving anywhere in Australia.

Drink or drug-driving offences

If you’ve committed a drink or drug-driving offence interstate, we’ll treat you as if you committed the offence in Victoria.  

That means that you might need to complete a Behaviour Change Program and use an alcohol interlock. If you need to drive with an interlock interstate, that requirement will also apply once you have a Victorian licence.

If you had a drink-driving offence interstate, we’ll need to confirm your offence details with the interstate authority. For us to do that, you’ll need to sign a Consent to release of information form [PDF 55Kb].

What if I have an overseas motorcycle licence?

If you hold an overseas motorcycle licence you may have additional restrictions imposed on your licence.

If you have not held your overseas motorcycle licence for 3 years from your 18th birthday, you will be subject to a pro-rata restricted period (E condition) from the date your Victorian licence is issued. The pro-rata period must exclude any time you were not permitted to drive (expired, cancelled, suspended, disqualified, surrendered and/or unlicensed).  

What if I have an overseas heavy vehicle licence?

If you have an overseas heavy vehicle licence you can complete a heavy vehicle licence assessment.

What safety measures will be in place for those getting tested and VicRoads staff?

To protect the health and wellbeing of all customers and staff, strict hygiene protocols will be in place in both drive test vehicles and at our Customer Service Centres. 

Pre-drive health-screening checks for all occupants in the vehicle, appropriate cleaning or coverage of vehicles used in tests, increased hand hygiene protocols for all occupants in the vehicle and the use of appropriate personal protection equipment as stipulated by VicRoads for all vehicle occupants as requested.

No one should be participating in a drive test if they are unwell.

Additional safety measures, including temperature checks and recording customer details for contact tracing at all of our Customer Service Centres.

Will VicRoads provide me with a face mask if I don’t have one?
