In Australia, cars and other vehicles travel on the left side of the road. If you have an international driver’s license you may be able to drive in Australia. Motorcyclists need a specific motorcycle license. Each state and territory has specific rules and regulations regarding driving, please check with your local traffic and roads authority for more details. If you are planning to drive in Melbourne, it is important to understand the Hook Turn (http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/home/safetyandrules/roadrules/turning.htm).
