Renewing your driving licence in Latvia?

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

Exchanging your driving licence

You can exchange your Dutch driving licence for a Latvian licence at the Latvian Road Safety Directorate. 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 Latvian driving licence. You can do so at the Latvian Road Safety Directorate.

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.
