Exchange foreign driving license

In certain cases, you may exchange a foreign driving license for a Dutch driving license. Below you can read which conditions apply when. In all cases, you must be registered in the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP). You must also have a valid residence permit. Was your driving license issued in a country of the European Union (EU) or European Free Trade Association (EFTA)?

Then you can exchange your driving license for a Dutch driving license. Your European driving license may have expired. In that case, you must enclose a statement from the issuing authority that it has no objection to the issue of a Dutch driving license. For some non-European countries, you can exchange a foreign driving license only if it is valid for a certain category.
