Hey Barneszilla,

Sorry I haven't been on in a while.

I have received an Australian Police Certificate and a Letter from the Victorian DVLA (Or equivalent) advising I never held a drivers licence in Victoria.

Was all extremely quick and easy to be honest (I'm proud of Australia for that).

Hello everyone !

I have sent all the documents for the driver licence history report for Queensland and I was wondering if some people could tell me how long it took for them to actually receive the letter saying that you never held a driver licence in that state ?

I can't find anyone who spoke about processing times . I have three weeks to give the documents to IEC and i'm starting to freak out!

Thanks a lot :)

Hey Helenefde,

Did you have to certify your identity documents? And if so, which documents did you use? All the information I can find just states 'Australian Passport', 'Australian ID Card' etc, the only piece that isn't Australian was a foreign passport, but I need to send 3 pieces. Getting really frustrated, so any help would be amazing!

Thanks,

Frustratingly, the F4362 form only has Australian identity on there and only 1 piece of acceptable foreign. However, they state they need 3 pieces, and all notarized, do you have any idea if there is any information elsewhere on what foreign evidence is acceptable?

Thanks!!

Hello! How were you able to get this certificate and letter? What is the process? And are you aware of a similar certificate that QLD TMR might provide?
Thank you!

Hi guys, just wondering if anyone can help on this topic.

I need a traffic history report from Queensland, and have read the other replies in this thread, yet I was wondering if I need to do all the stages "Stressedmum" posted as I never obtained a Australian drivers license. If that is the case does anyone know how I can get evidence from the Queensland roads authority, stating I never had one?
Or do I still need to apply for a traffic history report.

Many thanks, Alex.
