European citizens and persons with swiss citizenship who are holding a national driver’s license must combine their license with an international one to be allowed to drive vehicles, subject to their license type, in Korea. However, this regulation only applies for a period up to one year.
To have the permission to drive a car for the longer term, the national driving license must be replaced by a local Korean driving license. In this regard, it is advisable to contact the embassy of the respective home country. Only licenses for cars are recognized. Truck or motorcycle driving licenses are not permitted for exchange. To obtain a driving license for these vehicles, a practical on-the-spot test is indispensable. (Note: With a Korean driver’s license class 2 you are not allowed to drive minibuses with more than nine seats, such as KIA Carnival.)
If the national driving license is replaced with a Korean one, the national driving license will be withheld and can be exchanged again upon presentation of an air ticket before departure from South Korea.
