Driving licence


Driving licence

For short stays, less than 90 days, it is possible to rent and drive a car in Mozambique with an Italian driving licence. For Eswatini this opportunity is granted up to a maximum of six months. For long stays, since there is no reciprocity agreement in force with Italy on the conversion of driving licences, the competent local authorities (the Instituto Nacional de Viação for Mozambique and the Ministry of Transport for Eswatini) must be contacted for the procedures of obtaining the local driving licence.

Nationals residing in Botswana, Eswatini and Mozambique may request confirmation of the validity of their Italian driving licence from the Consular Office, provided that it has not expired more than three years ago and except in the cases provided for in Article 119, paragraphs 2-bis and 4 of the Italian Highway Code (driving licences of drivers suffering from diabetes or whose psychophysical fitness must be certified by specific commissions doctors). For the issuance of the confirmation certificate, the interested parties will have to carry out a check-up of the psychic and physical requirements at a medical office located near the Embassy. The medical certificate form can be downloaded from the Forms.

The renewal is valid for circulation both in Italy and abroad. Once you have regained your residence or abode in Italy, your driving licence must be confirmed by the competent central office of the Department for Transport, Navigation and Information and Statistical Systems.
