Converting Foreign Driving license to a Slovak Driving license

Company SLOVAKIAINVEST.RU s.r.o. offers you a service of replacement of the driver's license. A foreigner who has a residence (residence permit or permanent residence) in the territory of Slovakia at least 185 days per calendar year is allowed to apply for a Slovak driver's license.

However it is much easier just to change the driver's license issued in the home country into a slovak one. You do not need to pass any exams, or go through  a driving school. This opportunity is provided by a new Act on Road transportation number 8/2009, which came into force in February 2009.

According to the article 104, paragraph 4 of the Act, the owner of a driver's license (issued in a member state of the Geneva or the Vienna Conventions, but not in the country of European Economic Area) who has a residence permit or permanent residence in the territory of Slovakia is obliged within 60 days after 185 days from getting a residence permit or permanent residence to apply for the replacement of a driver's license.

According to the Act the driver's license replacement is obligatory after getting a residence permit or permanent residence. However, due to the fact thet the nuber of foreigners with a residence permit or permanent residence  in Slovakia remains relatively small, even the police officers do not know about this obligation. On the other side the Slovak driver's license has a big advantage in comparison with, for example, Russian – it has no time limit! Even if your, for example, Russian driver's license is valid only for ramaining half a year, you can get unlimited Slovak driver’s license.

For the replacement, you will need:

  • Driver's card (as a proof that the driver’s license was issued)
  • Driver's license
  • Your presence is essential only in moment of submition (as a photography is being made for a new license)

Note: Upon receiving the Slovak driver's license your old license is withdraw and sent to the country of issue.
