Exchanging Indian Driving license for Finland's driving license

Post by Manpreet kaur » Fri Jul 31, 2020 11:28 am

Hi,

What are the rules to exchange Indian driving license for Finnish driving license....?

My sister-in-law submitted her Indian license to exchange for finland's driving license...but her request has been rejected stating that she has to appear for the test... don't know why.?... why she should have to appear for the test when she can get her license exchanged without driving examination as india is among those countries which have signed Geneva Road Traffic Convention.....

Her license was issued one year before she moved to Finland.. someone said that license should be two years old...it's only then possible to get your driving license exchanged for finland's license.... How true it is..?

If anyone has any idea ... please...

Is there any kind of rule that your Indian license must be two years old before you move to finland to get it exchanged....

Thank you and regards...

Is it true that Indian license must be 2years old to get it exchanged.?

My sister-in-law moved to Finland one year ago...but she had got her Indian license one year before....

Some people say that license must be two years old to get it exchanged...which means she must have had her license in India for two years....only then it could have become eligible for exchange....

What about this.?

I haven't read anything that the license should be two years old. Who are the some people? Can they point the two year requirement from ajokortti-info.fi or from finlex.fi?

Nooooo! You/she/he have 2 year TIME to convert aboard licence to Finnish licence. If missing that requirement, then
need to go to driving school again.

Group 2 licence requires always driving tests...

AND! If you are already at Finland with RP, then you can't go to driving school anymore to your home country
while holiday travelling... Have to get that licence before you get RP to finland (/ EU).

Old enough to predate moving to Finland.

” If your Contracting State driving licence was granted when you were permanently resident in Finland, it cannot be exchanged for a Finnish driving licence. You can only get a Finnish driving licence through mandatory lessons and driving examination.”

Did they not issue a written decision spelling out the reasons? If not request them to issue one.

One second old for most countries, like Thailand. For some countries you have to put "x" mark to paper,
where asked "do you have more than 6 month driving experience in Finland".


EDIT:

It seems, that 6 month driving experience requirement is removed this year... So, one second enough...
