Permis de conduire

The Embassy in Canberra cannot issue or renew Belgian driver's licenses.

In Belgium, only residents (both Belgian and non Belgian) who are registered with a Belgian local authority (commune/gemeente) can obtain a Belgian driver's license. In accordance with the european regulations, european driver's licenses are always issued by the local authorities in all european memberstates.

This is also the case in Australia and New Zealand where the state authorities issue driver's licenses.

If you are a Belgian citizen residing Permanently in Australia or New Zealand, you should obtain an Australian/New Zealand driver's license. Please contact the Department of Motor Vehicles of your state for specific information. For detailed information, made available and updated by each state's administration, please click:

USING BELGIAN DRIVERS LICENSE IN AUSTRALIA
L’UTILISATION DU PERMIS DE CONDUIRE BELGE EN AUSTRALIE
GEBRUIK VAN HET BELGISCH RIJBEWIJS IN AUSTRALIE

You need to present either your Belgian driver’s license together with a translation, or together with an international driver’s license to be able to drive in Australia. In both cases you need to have your Belgian driver’s licence with you. Please read the information of the Road Traffic Authorities of the Australian states or territories that you plan to visit.

Pour pouvoir conduire en Australie, il est nécessaire de présenter un permis de conduire belge accompagné soit de sa traduction, soit d’un permis de conduire international. Il est impératif, dans les deux cas, d’être en possession de votre permis belge. Veuillez consulter les sites Internet des “Road Traffic Authorities” des Etats et Territoires d’Australie que vous comptez visiter.

Om in Australië een wagen te besturen dient u uw Belgisch rijbewijs voor te leggen samen met een vertaling of samen met een internationaal rijbewijs. In beide gevallen dient u uw Belgische rijbewijs ook bij u te hebben. Gelieve kennis te nemen van de informatie van de “Road Traffic Authorities” van de staat of territory die u wilt bezoeken.
