EXCHANGE OF THE EU OR EEA DRIVING LICENCE
DRIVING LICENCES ISSUED IN THE MEMBER STATES OF THE EU AND IN THE COUNTRIES OF THE EEA
A driving licence issued in the Member States of the European Union (EU) or in the countries of the European Economic Area (EEA) has the same value as Lithuanian one. Thus, if you have resided in one of these countries for some time and hold a valid driving licence issued in that country, you can also use it when driving in Lithuania.
It must be observed that there is no need to pass extra tests in order to exchange driving licences that were issued in the Member States of the EU and in the countries of the EEA.
