IS YOUR DRIVER’S LICENSE VALID IN LITHUANIA?

For anyone taking up residency in Vilnius, it is important to note that drivers from non-EU countries are only permitted to drive in Lithuania with an international licence for up to 90 days. Individuals planning to stay in Lithuania for 185 days or more in a given calendar year must obtain a Lithuanian driver’s permit.

It is also worth noting that passenger vehicles are not required to pay highway tolls; all cars must be fitted with winter or all-season tyres from 10 November to 1 April; and using a mobile phone without a hands-free system is not permitted while driving.

There are several multilingual driving schools offering services for foreigners who would like to obtain their Lithuanian driver’s licence.
