Driving licence recognition and validity – Liechtenstein

Driving licence validity in Liechtenstein

Driving licences are valid until the next medical check.

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 not have to renew the licence after changing your usual place of residence.

Non-EU driving licences - exchange & recognition

You must exchange your non-EU driving licence within 12 months of moving.

To exchange your non-EU driving licence:

  1. go to the Motorfahrzeugkontrolle Gewerbeweg 2, Postfach 684, 9490 Vaduz, Telnr. 00423 236 75 01
  2. hand in the following documents:
  • completed form
  • an eye test
  • a german translation of the non-EU/EEA driving licence (driving licences are accepted from Andorra, Australia, Israel, Japan, Canada, Korea, Croatia, Marokko, Monaco, New Zealand, San Marino, Singapur, Tunesia, USA).

If you have previously exchanged a non-EU driving licence for an EU licence in another EU country, you can use it in Liechtenstein.
