Driver's License

An EU license can be exchanged the same way that one would change an expired or lost Lithuanian license – you just have to arrive to a Registrar office, have a valid health certificate, an ID and pay for a new license.

Driver’s license, issued in a non-EU country

Driver’s licenses of third country (not belonging to the EU or the EEA) citizens are valid up until the person becomes a permanent resident of Lithuania, i.e. their place of residence is declared in Lithuania and they live here for at least 185 days every calendar year. In addition, foreign students that have lived in Lithuania for at least 6 months are also considered permanent residents of Lithuania. Upon becoming a permanent resident foreigner must exchange his non-EU driving license for Lithuanian one. Only foreigners who have a Lithuanian personal code (asmens kodas) and their residency declared in Lithuania, can exchange their non-EU driver’s license, i.e. national (D) visa holders cannot do it.

How to exchange a non-EU driver’s license?

To exchange your driver’s license that was issued in a non-EU, non-EEA country, you are required to pass driving theory and practical driving tests. Completing additional driving classes in Lithuanian driving schools is not required.

Whilst exchanging driver’s licenses issued in Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates or South Korea these requirements are not applied.

To take a theory test, applicants for driving licenses must produce the following documents:

Documentary proof of person’s identity.
Valid medical certificate confirming your state of health and psycho-physiological abilities are fit for driving a motor vehicle of a particular category.
Health attestation certificate confirming your graduation of courses in First Aid Training.
Earlier issued valid driving license, if any. If the previous driver’s license was issued abroad it needs to be officially translated into Lithuanian. If the driver’s license does not meet the requirements outlined by the Conventions on Road Traffic, an international driver’s permit must be submitted.

IMPORTANT: if your previous driver’s licence was issued in the United States you have to provide an international driver’s licence.

A driver’s license issued in a third country is exchanged if it is submitted to “Regitra” before the end of its expiry date. If the license expired whilst its owner was residing in Lithuania, the driver’s license can be exchanged if it is submitted to “Regitra” in the span of a year starting from the first day of residence in the Republic of Lithuania.
