If you are driving in Cairns, or across Queensland, and your driver licence is not in English you will need an official translation. If you do not have a valid license, you are risking a large fine and may not be covered by insurance.

Normally, you will need translation services if you hold a temporary visa. You do not need to get to get a Victorian driver licence and/or learner permit. You can drive using your current overseas driver licence for the length of your stay, BUT the driver licence must be written in English or accompanied by an English translation. That is where we can help. 

If you hold a permanent visa, then there are different rules

Guarantee: When your request has been confirmed, the certified licence translation will be delivered within the time frame based on the pricing option. If that service level is not achieved, then the price will be A$66.

Why do you need a Drivers Licence translation in Cairns, Queensland?

It is the law in Queensland that you need an official English translation of your licence if you are on a temporary visa. We have had people come into our office who have received massive fines for not having a valid licence. Most car rental companies will not hire you a car unless you show the valid licence.

Plan ahead

Last minute translations are more expensive. Our translators need to be able to drop other assignments to do the last minute translation. If you can plan ahead and submit your request early, you will save a significant amount of money. We do urgent translations frequently and most times we can deliver them very quickly. However, when it is outside of business hours o, weekends and public holidays, then it can be more challenging to get your translation complete.

Pricing

We offer three levels of pricing based on service level. We guarantee deliver after you have received a confirmation that we will deliver. Our most affordable option has a service level of 5 business days. The most popular is the 2 business day turnaround.
