DRIVING LICENCES

EU nationals

A national of EU/EEA/Switzerland who holds a valid EU driving licence and who resides in the Czech Republic may drive with his/her national driving licence in the Czech Republic for the period of its validity. At the same time, he/she may (but does not have to) apply at the relevant drivers authority for issuing a driving licence replacing his/her EU driving licence.

Nationals of non-EU countries

A holder of a valid driving licence issued by a foreign country may drive in the Czech Republic with:

1. a foreign driving licence pursuant to Convention on Road Traffic (Vienna 1968) or pursuant to Convention on Road Traffic (Geneva 1949) for the period of its validity only. A foreign national residing in the territory of the Czech Republic for a period longer than 1 year is obliged to apply at the relevant drivers authority for a driving licence replacing his/her driving licence issued by a foreign country, doing so within 3 months of the day when the permanent or temporary residence for a period longer than 1 year is permitted to him/her.

2. an international driving licence issued in addition to the foreign national driving licence in case this is not in accordance with the Convention on Road Traffic (Vienna 1968) or Convention on Road Traffic (Geneva 1949). The only limit here is the validity of the international driving licence. If the drivers authority has doubts about the validity of a driving licence issued by a foreign country, it shall check its validity with an embassy of the country that issued this driving licence.

3. A driving licence issued by a foreign country can be replaced by a driving licence of the Czech Republic only if the driving licence issued by a foreign country corresponds to the Convention on Road Traffic (Vienna 1968) or to the Convention on Road Traffic (Geneva 1949). Licences that do not correspond to the Conventions cannot be replaced and their owners must enter a driving school and take a theoretical and practical examination in vehicle driving. If you want to have your licence recognised, send it to the drivers authority.
