Overseas Licence Conversions

At Defence Driving School Sydney, we assist overseas licence holders to obtain a NSW licence by:

  • Highlighting the necessary skills and driving techniques required to pass the test
  • Training the students to become familiar with the road rules and the RMS test routes

Preparation for age-based tests

We can help older drivers get ready for their test by:

  • Working on the skills and driving techniques that are the focus of the test
  • Undoing the bad habits that have been ingrained through years of driving

Assessments for older drivers

From the age of 85, drivers are required to pass a driving assessment every two years. This is to retain an unrestricted licence, however a modified licence is also available. The assessment will be conducted through either the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), or here at Defence Driving School. In our team we have a RMS accredited assessor, which means you can conduct the test in our friendly, relaxed environment.

  • Teaching conducted at the pace of the individual
