As an overseas driver with a current, valid, full overseas licence you should conduct your overseas licence conversion to Victorian licence in an automatic car as it’s much easier to pass the driving test. Once you pass the Heatherton driving test you will be issued a full Victorian driver licence and allowed to drive a manual car.
