Transfer an interstate driver's licence

If you have moved to South Australia and hold a licence in another state or territory, you must transfer to a South Australian licence within 3 months.

If you live in another state and you’re visiting South Australia for a period of less than 3 months, you can drive using a valid interstate licence.

How to apply

Take these items to a Service SA customer service centre:

You will need to pay the administration fee and have your photo taken.

Your new licence will be of an equivalent class and have the same expiry date as your existing licence. You can extend the duration of your licence at the same time by paying the appropriate renewal fee.

What happens next

You will be issued with a temporary licence and you should receive your new photo licence in the post within 3 weeks.

Interstate learner's permit holders

Present your interstate learner's permit with the completed application form (156.9 KB PDF) and evidence of identity. Pay the fee and you will be issued a South Australian learner's permit.

If your learner's permit has expired by more than 12 months, you will need to sit the learner's theory test.
