Rules for exchanging a driving licence for Ukrainians in Lithuania
Currently, the driving licences of Ukrainian citizens are recognised in Lithuania, but Ukrainians had to pass an exam when exchanging a document for a Lithuanian one. This requirement has now been cancelled.
Ukrainians living in Lithuania were looking forward to the simplification of the procedure for renewing their driving licences.
In the future, when exchanging category A and B driving licences, it will only be necessary to provide a package of documents:
- a document proving permanent residence in Lithuania;
- the original driving licence;
- medical certificate.
The necessary procedures for approving the agreement are currently underway in Ukraine and Lithuania, and it will enter into force in a few months.
