According to him, due to the high demand, the list of countries where you can order the exchange of a driver's license is expanding. From now on, international delivery is available to 5 more European countries - Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Belgium and Switzerland.
Who can use international delivery of driver's license?
The service can be used by drivers who want to exchange their license obtained for the first time for 2 years, have lost or damaged this document, or have changed their personal data.
How to order the delivery of a driver's license?
To order the option, you need to log in to the Driver's Area and log in. Then specify the reason for exchanging the driver's license, enter the delivery address, and pay for the service.

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.
