Slovakia

Foreigners can exchange their national driving license for EU license in Slovakia. Before they do so they must have 6 months of residency in Slovakia. The process is called exchange - their license will be replaced by the EU (Slovak)license and their national license will not be returned.

EU citizens  can use their national driving license. If they wish to exchange it (e.g. due to upcoming expiry) the process is relatively straight forward  (consider around 1 week)

NON EU citizens are required to change their national license after 6 months of residency in Slovakia. Documents from home country (country which issued the license) will be needed. Sourcing of these documents may be time consuming so it is advisable that foreigners organize these documents before leaving home country. It is also recommended, after license is exchanged to obtain international driving license.

EU citizens as well as the countries who are the signatories of the 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Traffic  can use their national driving licenses provided they were issued in a new, unified format – credit card format. If they wish to exchange it (e.g. due to upcoming expiry) the process is relatively straight forward and takes around 30 days.

NON EU citizens from countries who are not the signatories of the Vienna Convention are required to change their national license after 6 months of residency in Poland.
