Hello,

I have a question about the driving license. Is there any service around (Girne/ Esentepe) who does all the paperwork for exchange the foreign license into a KKTC one? I dont wanna go to Lefkosa...


thank you

...and you retain your original driving licence in addition to the TRNC one, you don't 'exchange' it...

My friend was told by Trevor that he would have to go to the tax office in Kyrenia with his passport to get the paperwork certified in order for a 3rd party to do the rest for him.

Totally agree Wanderer. Did it earlier this month for my next door neighbour. So very simple.

I didn't do that nor have my photographs signed by anyone. Just went the driving school route as being new here it was easier than finding the place and jumping through hoops. Having said that I know of others who have done it themselves and it was easy.

As I said, this is what Trevor at Capital Bank requires people to do. I have no knowledge of the driving school procedure.

Yes sorry if it looks like that was a criticism. It wasn't and was more of an observation. Just seemed strange to me as we didn't have to do it.

No problem I didn't take it as criticism just wanted to let people know Capital Bank's requirements.
