Hello Everyone!!
So, unfortunately I got busted going under the tunnel in Melbourne for a speeding ticket. It's not bad, just going 4k's over!! :(

Anyway, I'm over on a Bridging Visa (thanks to the help from everyone here) and just curious if this is going to be a big problem getting my residency?

Also- I only have an International Drivers license and my license from the States. So how will the police charge me for the 1 demerit that gets taken off? Am I supposed to or am I allowed to get a license yet?

Currently, the ticket written was charged to my partner bc he owns the vehicle, but I was driving. It asks to nominate the person who was driving if it is different than the person who owns the vehicle.

Any help about this would be appreciated!!!
Thanks!!

Don't worry speeding is nothing to worry about ... unless you run out of points ;).

Speeding fine isn't anything that will affect your visa.

The demerit points get taken off your international license and when you get your Australian license it will reflect this. So you will have 11 points instead of 12.

Each state is different with the rules but check there. Usually you have until 3 months after you get PR to change your license over (that is for QLD).

With licenses from the states you can jist go in and transfer it over.
