Driving license - Apply for an international driving license

Service Description

International driving licenses are required for temporary stays in some countries, especially non-European countries. The international driving license is a travel document that is primarily intended to make it easier for official traffic control authorities (especially the police) to determine whether a foreign driver has the required driving license for their vehicle.

In most European countries, foreign drivers are no longer required to carry an international driving license. However, it is strongly recommended that you carry one when traveling to Albania, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, for example. For journeys through non-European countries, it is mandatory in most cases to carry an international driving license.

Please find out in good time whether an international driving license is required for your destination country, as this must be applied for at least 6 weeks before the start of your trip. This is particularly necessary if you do not yet have an EU driving license.

To apply, you must appear in person at the driving license authority.
