Issuing Vietnam driving license for foreigners in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi


If you want to stay long in Vietnam, you really wish to have a mean of transportation to be active in work.

But to use motorbike, you must have driving license which is issued by Vietnam authorization.

To get  a motorcycle driving license you have two forms of selection:

1. Learn driving motor vehicle and get new driving license which is issued by the competent authorities in Vietnam

2. Change driving license from your old valid driving license which is granted by your government agencies where you live to a driving license as required by Vietnam state agencies.

Hi, Could you help us to obtain the Vietnam driving licenses so then when we arrive in Vietnam we can rent a car or motorcycle? If yes, do you offer a discount for applying for the Visa and drivers license? We are two persons.

Hello,

I am a Frenchman with a Canadian international driving license. I'm landing in HCMV beginning of August with a 3 months visa (yet, I'm planning to stay till the end of February). As the Canadian licence is not valid in Vietnam, I plan to exchange it with the Vietnamese driving licence.

This said, I would like to know your offers.

Any help is much appreciated.
I live in Hanoi. I have a Vietnam TRP (temporary residence permit). I have an expired Singapore and Australia car driver license

I am U S citizen. I do not speak Vietnamese

I would like to get Vietnam motor car driver's license.

Hello,

I've been working in Vietnam for 2 years and driving a motorbike. I had a driver's license, but it expired about 5 years ago as I've been out of my home country, and I don't have even my old card.

So, basically I have nothing!!!!!

What steps can I take to get a Vietnamese motorbike license?

I saw someone else raising this question, but I couldn't see where it was addressed.

Thanks
Motorbike license
I am a resident of Vietnam who is working here legally, and would like to apply for a motorbike license for vehicles up to 175cc.

I do not presently have a driver's license in any country. I speak and read very little Vietnamese, so it would be difficult (not impossible but it would cost me a month of studying at least) for me to pass the written exam.

I can probably pass the driving test as I've been driving electric or 50cc motorbikes here for about 4 years.

Can you suggest a reasonable solution? I'll need to know what documents are required, the cost, and approximately how long the process would take.
Dear Sean

Thanks so much for your email

Can you tell me which city/province are you living now so that I can consult you better about this service?
