Driver's license, issued in an EU member state


If your driver’s license is issued in an EU member state, it is valid in the entire EU.

One only has to exchange his/her license to a Lithuanian driver’s license if the original one expires, two years after you started regularly living in Lithuania (if your driver’s license does not have an expiration date) or if you broke traffic laws in Lithuania.

You can only have one valid EU driver’s license. This license is issued by the institutions of the country where a person permanently resides. If one moves from one EU member state to another, there is usually no need to change their driver’s license. You can use your driver’s license until its expiration date.

Driver’s licenses that have been issued in other EU member states are exchanged without any additional conditions or examinations. The foreign license can be exchanged the same way that one would change an expired or a lost Lithuanian license – you just have to arrive to a “Regitra” office, have a valid health certificate, an ID and pay for a new license.
