Driving License

To drive in the Czech Republic, you must have a valid driver’s license. 

If you plan to stay in the Czech Republic for more than 6 months, you must have a valid Czech driver’s license provided your license was not issued by an EU country and/or your license does not comply with the Conventions on Road Traffic - either the 1968 Vienna Convention or the 1949 Geneva Convention. 

For more information and to check if your country has ratified these Conventions, please visit Vienna Convention or Geneva Convention. 

It is important to learn and obey traffic laws, they are enforced.  Car insurance is mandatory.  If a car is not insured, the owner of the car is financially responsible for any accidents or damage connected to the car.
