Driving

When moving to Denmark, you might have to exchange your driver's licence for a Danish one and in some cases, pass a new test in order to drive legally.

If you have a foreign driver's licence and are residing in Denmark, you must make sure that your licence is valid for driving in Denmark. 


EU/EEA licences

If your licence is issued in an EU/EEA country or in the Faroe Islands, you do not need to exchange your driver's licence for a Danish one. You may drive the same vehicles in Denmark as you are allowed to drive on your licence in the country of issue.

 

Licences from other countries

If your licence is issued in another country, please check the rules for driving in Denmark.

Please pay attention to the rules specifying how long you can wait before being required to exchange your foreign driver's licence for a Danish one.
