If you prefer driving, there are a few things you should know before you can start exploring Melbourne by car.
Drivers licence and road rules
You may already be an experienced driver back home but you may discover that your drivers licence is not valid in Australia. Before you start to drive, it is important to check with VicRoads to ensure you have the correct qualifications.
You may seek to buy a car when you’re in Australia. Buying new and second-hand cars in Australia is relatively straightforward but it’s important to understand what you’re buying before making a decision. When purchasing a car, it is recommended you do your research and if you’re unsure, seek further advice.
Carshare or hire cars
If you need a car for a short period of time, there are many carshare or hire car companies to consider. These companies offer hire car options for a few hours, a few days, a few weeks and even months at a time. When choosing a company, be sure that you pay attention to contract details about insurances and additional costs before making a decision.
