Question about Driving License Rules in Denmark

by Bette

Hi - I was reading your information on driver's license rules, and I saw something that is a bit confusing. The site notes that one can only drive on their foreign license for 14 days after moving to Denmark. However, on the politi.dk site, the police note that you have up to 90 days to exchange your license (if not from an EU, group 1 or group 2 country) or up to 1 year (if from a group 1 or 2 country; EU doesn't have a limit it seems). Here is the link: https://www.politi.dk/en/Citizen_Service/ForeignDrivingLicences/ I don't know when the information from this site was last updated, but the politi.dk info was updated on the 6th of May, 2014. Regards - Bette


Response: Bette, you are correct and the rules are changing. There are several countries that are trying to change the rules for their citizens (especially the USA and Canada), but each government has to petition the Danish government to lift the restrictions. Contact the police or your borger service for more details and changes. I try to keep up, but seems like there are constantly changes to the rules.
