as the title suggests, me and the missus are moving to australia in the not too distant future. i was wondering if anybody would know if my ICC and VHF qualifications are accepted there or if i would need to re-do them locally?

thanks in advance.

No idea but if you tell me what state, I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Even though the collection of states became the nation Australia in 1901, someone forgot to tell our state politicians and they try their best to have different rules.

As an example, an international car drivers license (or one from another Australian state for that matter) is only accepted for 3 months if you believe most states. In fact the Australian Road Rules Act clearly states it is 18 months.

I am in Sydney so feel free to get in touch for a ride around Port Hacking, Botany Bay or Sydney Harbour.

In the last few months the RTA that looks after our roads has taken over Maritime which used to be a separate body. So now look on rta.nsw.gov.au

What you are after though is on the old site here http://www.maritime.nsw.gov.au/cv/recog_certs.html

You do realise July is the middle of our winter. It might drop to only a couple of degrees over night. Could probably still go boating though during the day.
