15% are done between 19 months and 22 months.
Another 10% take over 22 months.

And some require that you get the licence within 3 months of residing and no later.

Here's one from NSW: https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/trans...driver-licence

And from WA: "If you hold a permanent resident visa and are living in Western Australia, you can drive with your current overseas licence for up to 3 months. During this time, you will need to apply for a WA driver's licence using the procedure below."

Of course there would be no time requirement if not transferring an overseas licence amd starting from scratch...

The harder part is meeting the identity requirements for your state. Some only require a few things, but WA required 5 which meant I needed to gather some Australian documents before I could apply (TFN and medicare for example).

I wonder what happens after 3 months of getting the PR visa if you haven't transferred over....
