If you have a proof of residence in Australia, it will take about an hour in total to get an aussie driving license. With your UK license, you don't need to take a driving test.

If it's a car it's simple. If it's something larger you have to go for an assessment with a company.

Does this vary from state to state?

Not any more. It used to be different, but these days all states will just effectively swap your UK licence for an Australian one, on a PR visa.

Don't like the idea of swapping licences, does this actually mean giving up the UK licence?

No. It's just an easy term to use, but you do keep your UK one.

I think you have up to 3 months on your UK license before you have to get an aussie one.
