Good Morning

Generally they apply the licence he has.

But my understanding is that when he applies fro a NSW licence he will have to show the overseas one he is driving on and they will put the points on his NSW licence.

If he applies as a new driver as though he has not held a licence and goes through the process of Learners permit and then provisional then he will have a clean NSW licence.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards
Leon
