If your driving licence was issued in:
- Australia (other than the ACT)
- Isle of Man
- New Zealand
If your driving licence was issued in one of these countries, you may have your driving licence for category B exchanged without a driving test to check your skills.
It is the country, etc. (potentially through an Embassy/Consulate) that must draw up the application to be included among the Group 2 countries. For the application, the country/Embassy must use a special application form to provide information about road traffic conditions in the country, etc. in question. The Danish Road Agency will decide whether the country can be entered on the list of Group 2 countries.
It is a characteristic of the countries, etc. that may be included by Group 2 that driver training there is not quite comparable with Danish driver training. However, general road safety standards are comparable with Danish standards. In light of their driving experience, citizens from these countries are therefore given the opportunity to have their driving licences exchanged without a driving test to check their skills.
Countries, etc. that become comprised by Group 2 will be made public on the website of The Danish Road Agency.
If your driving licence was issued in a Group 2 country, you may wait 90 days before exchanging your driving licence when you have establish usual residence in Denmark.
It will be a condition for exchange of your driving licence that you sign a declaration of honour, stating that you have two years’ actual driving experience, that your driving licence have not been revoked within the last five years, and that your licence is not otherwise limited or given on special terms.
The price of having your foreign driving licence exchanged for a Danish driving licence is DKK 280 (2019).
