Here's my questions regarding a licence change from Vic to Qld to those in the know. My stint in Melbourne is set to end later this year and I'm due to go back to Brisbane. I got rid of my L plate 3 weeks ago but am still on restrictions for a while. My car licence was supposed to expire in July 2009 and I've been unrestricted on that since 1997. I haven't received my update/combined licence from VicRoads yet so don't know what change will exist to that date. With that background info: 1. What's the restriction period in Qld? 2. Would I be better off renewing my Vic licence for 12 months then changing to a Qld licence after my restriction period is up (22 March 2010) or doesn't it matter and my bike restriction will end in March 2010 regardless?
