We haven't moved yet and I'll be taking my test soon, Can I use it in Portugal or will I need to do another test?

I don't believe a Cayman Island driving licence can be exchanged for a Portuguese one.

The list of non EU countries whose licence can be exchanged without taking a PT driving test can be found on these two documents. The first lists countries that PT has a bi-lateral agreement with, the second lists those countries that are signed up to either the 1949 or 1968 International Conventions on Road Traffic.

Whilst the Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory they are not included in the list of BOT's that are included in the UK's ratification of those Conventions.
