Indian Drivers Licence Verification in Victoria

From Monday, 23 October 2017, VicRoads will no longer require people to go through the Indian Drivers Licence Verification (IDLV) process with VFS to convert their Indian Driving Licence to a Victorian drivers licence.

See this link for more information.

However, this only applies in Victoria. If you live in NSW and you want to convert your Indian Drivers Licence to a NSW drivers licence through RMS, you will still need to complete IDLV process through VFS.

As part of the IDLV process, if your name on your Indian Drivers Licence is different to your name on your Indian Passport, you will need our notary public to verify that you are the one and the same person. We can also help you to obtain an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Review the IDLV Checklist from VFS for more information.
