So, anyone have experience doing this? It doesn't say anything one way or another regarding specifically regarding motorbike license here (unlike say, the heavy vehicle license which they say you still need to take the test). Without any wording on motorbike licenses, I'd assume it transfers over okay, but I wanted to hear about what experiences people have had. http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/Home/Licensing/NewResidentsVisitors/OverseasDriversLicences.htm I ask because I've had different experiences with different countries, and it's always better to be informed about these things before going in. In Canada, the local official initially said that only car licenses transfer over, until I had to show them their own documents from their website that motorbike licenses indeed do transfer. In Japan, I had to take & pass the license test for the big-bike class license, as without that test, it'd only transfer over to mid-class license (400cc & below).
