    You get it from the Automobile Association of Singapore.

    I have been stopped for routine checks by police twice. Both times I've had to show my (Singapore) licence, once I had to show my student ID as well to prove I could drive on my Singapore licence, and the other time, the licence itself was good enough for the policeman to send me on my way without further trouble.

    Uni of queensland! hahaha yeah!

    i was there for a couple of years?

    drove around and around with singapore licence

    no prob

    when to the transport authority wanted to make an aussie licence, thinking that it would be cool. but the rejected me. they said only citizen and PR are allowed to convert. so i am not allowed to convert. but if i really want their licence, i can take their highway code again. and wait for 6months to take their driving test... this is the only way to have their licence

    the transport authority told me clearly that as a tourist visa, student visa, working visa holder, as long as i can drive back home, i can drive in their country...

    just two weeks back i flew to melb... drove to sydney, ... drove to brisbane.... and drove back down to melb again all on my singapore licence... hahaha

    no prob one lah...
