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."

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).
