Driving licence photo size and requirements
The driver’s licence is an official title that allows Australians to drive various types of vehicles on public roads. If you are from abroad, the law in Australia varies from state to state. Some administrative units require an international driving license along with a valid driving license issued in the driver's country of origin. Unlike other states, they will respect a driving license issued in another country, but only if they have a copy translated into English. However, in most Australian states (except Northern Territory) you can legally drive a car with only a foreign driving license as long as it is valid. However, you can only drive these vehicles under the conditions that your driving license permits you to drive them in your country of origin.
The driver's licence, among other data, also includes the driving licence photo which must follow the established standards. In Australia depending on the states, requirements for driving licence photo can differ. The driving licence photo has to meet certain requirements - which can be found at the bottom of this page.
