Renewing your driving licence in Finland?

If you live in Finland and your Dutch driving licence has expired, you cannot renew it. You must exchange your Dutch licence for a Finnish licence.

Exchanging your driving licence

You can exchange your Dutch driving licence for a Finnish licence at the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency (Traficom). You will not need to retake your driving test.

Driving licence lost or stolen?

If your Dutch driving licence has been lost or stolen you must apply for a Finnish driving licence. You can do so at the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency (Traficom).

You can download a statement of loss (PDF, 75kb) (information in Dutch) and send it to the Road Transport Agency (RDW). This will prevent unauthorised use of your driving licence.
