Service centers of the Ministry of Internal Affairs expand the geography of the possibility of exchanging a national driver's license. Thanks to the cooperation of the Main Service Center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the State Migration Service of Ukraine, another significant step in this direction took place.

Recently, the Regional Service Center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Zhytomyr region signed the Agreed Decision on cooperation of the Main Service Center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs with the State Enterprise “Document”, which is part of the management of the State Migration Service of Ukraine. Soon this will make it possible to exchange a Ukrainian driver's license for the same Ukrainian one in the largest city of Turkey - Istanbul.

The decision was signed by the General Director of State Enterprise “Document” Volodymyr Shvachko and the acting head of the Regional Service Center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Zhytomyr region Volodymyr Hryb.

The certificate exchange service will be provided:

  • in the event of a change in the driver's personal data (when the person has changed the surname, first name, patronymic or gender);
  • when the validity period has expired (relevant mainly for driver's licenses issued for the first time, since their validity period is 2 years);
  • in case of damage to the driver's license (damaged, the records are not readable).

Currently, you can exchange a national driver's license outside Ukraine in 4 locations in Poland:

  • Warsaw, 02-222, Aleji Jerozolimskie, 179 (shopping center “Blue City”, 2nd floor);
  • Gdansk, 80-309, Aleja Grunwaldzka 415;
  • Krakow,31-154, Pawia, 5 (shopping center “Galeria Krakowska”);
  • Wroclaw, 54-118, Aleja Śląska (Tarczyński Arena).

We also remind you that on January 10, 2023, the Agreement between the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Government of the Republic of Turkey on mutual recognition and exchange of national driver's licenses came into force. This makes it possible for citizens of Ukraine who moved to Turkey for temporary or permanent residence to exchange their Ukrainian driver's license for a Turkish one without passing theoretical and practical exams. Likewise, Turkish citizens who temporarily or permanently reside in Ukraine and have a Turkish driver's license can exchange it without passing exams at the service center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
