Rules for exchange

Rules for exchange from foreign to Danish driving license

If you have been ordinarily resident in Denmark and have a driving license that hasn´t been issued in an EU-/EEA-land or the Faroe Island, you must have to exchange your foreign license within 90days, if you still want to drive a motor vehicle in Denmark.
During the period of 90 days, you are only allowed to drive in Denmark, if you foreign driving license issued in Latin letters, or is accompanied by a translation into Danish, English or French. The translation must done by a public authority organization in the country.

​If the municipality thinks it necessary, to obtained a translation of the license from the applicant. A translation will generally be necessary, unless the license text is printed in English, or there is a license from EU- or an EEA country.
