Driving licence recognition and validity – Belgium
Driving licence validity in Belgium
The photocard driving licence is valid for 10 years.
If you hold a driving licence for life (i.e. one that remains administratively valid for an unlimited period) that was issued by another EU country, you will have to exchange the licence 2 years after changing your usual place of residence.
Non-EU driving licences - exchange & recognition
You must exchange your non-EU driving licence immediately after moving to Belgium.
To exchange your non-EU driving licence:
go to your local municipality
hand in the following documents: your foreign driving licence, and if required, a certificate from your embassy.
If you have previously exchanged a non-EU driving licence for an EU licence in another EU country, you can use it in Belgium.
