Exchange driving licenses issued in Egypt and other non - EU or non - EEA countries in Lithuania

Created: 2022.10.25

It is necessary to exchange a national driving license issued in Egypt and in non-European Union (EU) or non-European Economic Area (EEA) countries when a non-EU or non-EEA citizen resides in Lithuania permanently and legally for at least 185 days in each calendar year and has acquired or already has a Lithuanian personal identification number.

A national driving license issued in Egypt and in other non-EU or non-EEA countries, can be exchange in Lithuania if its validity period has not expired and after passing the theory test and practical test in the State Enterprise "Regitra" https://www.regitra.lt/en/.

Examinations are not required if the driving license is issued: in Switzerland, the Republic of Korea (only for drivers of vehicles of categories B, BE), in the United Arab Emirates for a citizen of the Republic of Lithuania or the United Arab Emirates (only for drivers of vehicles of categories A1, A2, A, B and D1).

All detailed information on how driving licenses are exchanged in Lithuania is described in this link: https://www.regitra.lt/en/services/driving-licences/exchange-of-the-driving-licence-after-the-return-from-abroad/exchange-of-the-driving-licence-after-the-return-from-other-countries

 

It should be noted, that Egypt joined the 1949 Geneva Convention on Road Traffics and issue an International driving license in accordance with the requirements of Annex 9 to this Convention. An example can be found below. The embassy recommends that national driving license issued in Egypt be translated into Lithuanian (this can be done upon arrival in Lithuania, the translator's signature is required) and obtained an International driving license issued in Egypt. Without an International driving license issued in Egypt, the national Egyptian driving license will not be exchange in Lithuania.

International driving licenses in Egypt are issued by the Automobile and touring club of Egypt: https://automobileclubegypt.com/en/license-en.html
