Sounds like you need to contact VicRoads directly to ask those questions. :) Or they may be able to send a report to say you have no driving history as I've read that somewhere before. (not totally reliable info and I'm from Queensland so it's slightly different there).

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. Had already checked out these links before your message, due to which I posted it on the thread here. I am overseas and have lost my learner's license (possibly expired too). The options on VicRoads and CIC website only allow you to either apply for a new one or renew an existing one - both of which require you to be physically present in Australia.
I have neither the learner's license (which I never used) and neither can I necessarily say that I never applied for any kind of driver's license in Victoria. I am also not an Australian PR holder or citizen.

The real question is whether VicRoads will be able to retrieve a learner's license issued somewhere between 2007-2010 and then issue a driver's license history report or alternatively give me a statement saying that since I never used and it was only a learner's license? And will they be able to do so using only my non-Australian passport and my name only as references?
Call VicRoads. They should be able to find you in the system with your name and address in Victoria. If they need any proof of identity they will tell you. I didn't have any records of my Victorian license number either, so I called up and they found me in the system with name and address. I gave them a mail-to address and paid with a credit card. Wasn't very hard to do.

Hi mates,
URGENT,
I have lived in Aus for more than 6 months and therefore, I have obtained my PCC from the AFP.
Since I mostly stayed in QLD, I have ordered a license history from the TMR Queensland.
Here is my question:
I had a short stay of about 40 days in Melbourne. Does that oblige me to acquire another License history from the VicRoads?!
Im baffled and appreciate ur help,,

Hello Friend ,
Need advice if you applied directly from afp site(https://www.afp.gov.au/) or third party vertias who also looks give same document (https://www.afpcheck.com/)

My application got rejected today saying below . When i see the document now i can see it is mentioned "Complete Disclosure"

"The Police certificate from AUSTRALIA that you provided with your application is not acceptable. Please consult our website in order to determine the required document. https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/medical-police/police-certificates/how.html"

Today i applied again from afp site (Took 42$) and third party vertias (Took 98 $) . Do you have any idea if both are valid or i need to submit in future only from afp site ?

Also how much time it took to get approval and get the same as i am currently in Chicago , USA .

Please help

Thanks a lot for into . We applied the same yesterday from the link you suggested above.
I am currently in chicago , USA . How much time usually it takes to process request and finally receiving the same .

is it possible to send sample copy to my email id bharati.bitn@gmail.com as i initially applied by VeritasCheck ( They took 98$) which they claimed is same as we get from AFP .I wanted to see the sample if it is same or something different. In this forunm i don't see option to upload the same which i got . is there anyway you can verify the document which i got .. I don't want to get rejected for next time so i am little worried ...

http://www.apostille.com.au/images/afp-cert.jpg this is what the PCC from australia will look like. I applied directly from the AFP website and got it in 20 days. i stayed in perth for 2 years and live in india currently. you should standard disclosure, name check only and not the complete disclosure. depending on which state you were in, you might be required to show your traffic history as well.

Yes, as long as you got the correct type etc. Be sure to read the requirements for the Australia PCC, you may need to get other documents as well.

Thanks

"Applicants who are unable to provide a Traffic History or a Full Licence History Search must provide evidence, issued by the Queensland and/or Victoria roads authority, stating that they have never held a driver’s license in that state."


Contact Queensland Dept of Transport (follow the links) and ask if they can provide a document indicating that you never held a driver's license.
