VIETNAMESE DRIVER’S LICENSE
Vietnamese Driving Licences are mandatory for all drivers of motor vehicles as well as for riders of motorcycles with a capacity of over 50cc. Non-Vietnamese citizens are only permitted to drive in Vietnam if they hold a Vietnamese Driver’s License.
To convert your Driving Licence or International Driving Permit into a Vietnamese Driver’s licence, the applicant must first hold a valid Vietnamese residence permit or a three-month visa and a valid Driving Licence.
Most medical insurance companies will not cover you for accidents etc on a motorbike WITHOUT a valid license for the country you are in. As Vietnam does not treat international licenses as valid, unless you have a VN license your medical insurance company will be able to void the insurance.
If you do not hold a valid license, your vehicle will be kept in custody for max. 90 days by the traffic police.
