Yes. We accept driver’s licences issued in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). If you have a foreign driver's licence, you may be asked to provide additional documentation to validate your licence.
Non-EU/EEA driver's licences
Driver’s licences issued in Australia, Brazil, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Canada, Chile, Israel, Japan, China, New Zealand, Russia, Switzerland, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Ukraine and USA are valid for 3 months from first entry in the EU or EEA. You may be asked to provide additional documentation to validate your licence:
- A certified translation of your driver's licence (or an International Driver's Permit)
- Your passport
- Proof of address in the EU/EEA
- Proof of date of entry into the EU/EAA (e.g. boarding pass, entry visa, proof of residence)
- Your driver's license must have been valid for at least 1 year
The International Driver's Permit is valid as long as it authorises you to drive in the EU/EEA. However, the IDP is not a substitute for your original driver's licence. You should still have your passport and your original driver's licence with you while driving.
After the 3 months you need to exchange your driver’s license to a Danish license to be able to continue driving.
Is your country not on the list?
Countries not mentioned in the list above will not be validated. You need to exchange your driver’s licence to a Danish licence to be able to drive. Most likely, you will be required to take a driver’s test to obtain the Danish licence.
