Exchange of driving license

When moving to Denmark, you might have to exchange your driver's license for a Danish one and in some cases, pass a new test in order to drive legally.

In Denmark it is not a requirement that you, as a citizen in the EU or an EEA country, exchange your driving license into a Danish driving license in order to be able to drive legally. Therefore, you can legally drive the same types of vehicles as you are allowed to in accordance with your valid driving license issued in another EU Member State or an EEA country.  

However, there may be special requirements regarding age and residence to consider. Please see Færdelsstyrelsen and for more information.
