Driving licence
  • If you have a habitual residence in the Republic of Slovenia and residence registered in the Republic of Slovenia on the basis of a residence permit, you may for one year from the date of registration of residence with a valid driving license issued by the competent authority of your country, and in the course of reciprocity, drive those vehicles in the Republic of Slovenia for which a driving license has been issued to you.
  • There is no time limit for driving licenses issued in EU Member States, Liechtenstein, Norway or Iceland.

If you have a habitual residence in the Republic of Slovenia and meet the conditions for driving motor vehicles, you may requestthe replacement of a valid driving license with a Slovenian driving license. A Slovenian driving license is issued to you if you pass the practical part of the test.

You do not have to take the practical part if you have a driving license from an EU Member State, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland for all categories, Japan for categories AM, A1, A2, A, B1 and B, South Korea or Australia for categories B1 and B.

Upon replacement, the driving license issued abroad will be returned to the authority that issued your license in your country.

You may submit a request for the replacement of a driving license at any administrative unit, and you must submit:

  • your current driving license,
  • valid medical certificate,
  • a 35 x 45 mm photo that shows your true likeness and is not retouched,
  • proof of payment of an administrative fee (EUR 18.10) and a driving license form (EUR 3.27),
  • proof that when obtaining a driving license you fulfilled the condition of habitual residence in the country that issued a valid driving license, or studied in that country for at least six months.

You may contact any school in your area to take a practical part of the exam.
