1. Log in to the driver's electronic cabinet using Bank ID or Diia. Signature".

2. In the menu, select "Order a service" and then click on "Restoration and exchange of driver's license".

The cost of the service: 311 UAH for a new driver's license + 960 UAH for its delivery abroad.
Delivery time: 10-15 days.


It is also possible to reissue a driver's license at the branches of the state enterprise "Document", but the cost of this service is much higher than ordering a document through the driver's electronic cabinet, and it also requires a larger package of documents, including a certificate of fitness to drive.


What else is required to drive a car with Ukrainian registration abroad?


First of all, when planning a trip or already being abroad in a car with Ukrainian registration, the driver must take care of obtaining a Green Card in advance - a car insurance policy that is mandatory in 50 countries, including the EU.


After all, if a driver does not have an insurance policy, or if it has expired for at least one day, he or she faces not only a serious fine, the amount of which is several times higher than the cost of an insurance policy issued for a year, but in some cases even the confiscation of the vehicle and deportation from the host country with a subsequent entry ban.

We remind you! The European Union has hosted more than 4 million Ukrainian refugees since the beginning of the full-scale war in Ukraine. Despite the large number of IDPs, EU countries continue to accept citizens in need.
