Hey guys.
I hope all are doing good. I am planning for Melbourne once the situation gets better. I had following query:
I had applied for my Indian driving license smart card as I had that old license book which I used for many years and was very lazy to get it changed into a smartcard. Finally, when I applied and got the smart card where I had given all details as per passport, there has been a small mismatch in my address. One letter is missing in my address on the license smartcard. It is written as "Mandre" in license and "Mandrem" in Passport. So an 'm' is missing in my license smartcard address. Will this be an issue once I apply for Australian driving license especially in Victoria?
@mohsinciddiki @MysticRiver @PK-Adelaide @littlejohn @Dileep or anybody who can comment on this.

Hi, it's not a big deal that can be cleared by submitting a letter on notary if vic roads rises an objection.
Thank you for the reply @tharun
You mean, I can do notary in Australia only?

Okay. Is it a compulsion to have a DL extract from India? Are you already in Melbourne?
Different states has different rules regarding the DL specially if you have a DL from Ind, Pak or Bang, for WA its a lengthy process to apply with an IND DL. I was about to start the process but then I had a valid Saudi DL I approached the help desk and showed them the Saudi DL they told me to get this translated and you can directly sit for the exam.. All Done :)

Hi, it's not a big deal that can be cleared by submitting a letter on notary if vic roads rises an objection.
Agreed. Although, I think they will understand and won't ask for any declaration. It's a pretty small and obvious mistake given everything else remains the same. Furthermore, I believe all they care about is your name and DOB, don't matter if the address matches your passport.
 
Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
