I asked a similar question a few weeks ago, got no answer so far. I wanted to know about the costs of doing this.

To answer your question, look at this please:

yes you can. atleast i am 99% sure. a few years ago i had a friend from germany who was living in aus for a year. she got her license in queensland as it is MUCH cheaper. if u can already drive it will cost u all up about 500 bucks <(u have to have a certain amount of lessons beofr u can sit the exam) if u r a good driver less and even if u cant drive it still wont cost u 1000. BUT u have to have a learning permit for 6 months befor the exam so it only works out as a good thing to do if u r going for a year or so.
