How to get an international driving licence: instructions 


You can exchange your national driving licence for an international one by contacting the nearest service centre of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. For this procedure, you need to prepare a set of the following documents: 


  • Copy and original of your national driving licence; 
  • Passport of a citizen of Ukraine. If you have an ID card without electronic confirmation of residence registration, you must additionally provide a certificate of residence registration;
  • Foreign passport of a citizen of Ukraine;
  • Photo 3.5×4.5 on matte paper;
  • Receipt confirming payment for the service. 


It is noted that this procedure may take up to 5 days. 


The validity of an international driving licence is 3 years, but no longer than the validity of a national licence. 


To ensure safe travelling by your own car without unnecessary expenses, we recommend taking out a Green Card insurance policy. You can do this by following the link in a few clicks.


Just a reminder. In the previous article, we talked about the Vienna and Geneva Conventions. You can find out in which countries your national and international driving licences are valid by following the link.




Our recommendation for a safe and comfortable trip: 


Visit Ukraine Insurance - insurance for a safe stay abroad without unnecessary expenses;

Green Card - compulsory car insurance for traveling abroad;

Visit Ukraine Tickets - book tickets for buses, trains, and airplanes to/from Ukraine and between cities around the world;

Private Lawyer service - professional legal support on visa and migration issues;

Visit Ukraine Merch - buy patriotic clothing and accessories with worldwide delivery.
