Driving licence translation

sworn translation

Setting off on an adventure on foreign roads involves more than a full tank of petrol and a well-stuffed suitcase. Have you thought about translating your driving licence? It's an essential passport to hassle-free international driving. Indeed, in the legislative mosaic of each country, the French driving licence often needs to be accompanied by its translated version, especially if you plan to cross non-European borders.

This is where the expertise of a sworn translator comes in, a professional who is indispensable for validating your licence in a multitude of languages, from English to Arabic and Spanish. These experts, accredited by the Court of Appeal, ensure that your translation is accurate and official, an essential document if you want to travel freely and legally. Although sometimes perceived as a constraint, this step is crucial for your safety and that of your loved ones.

When you consult our sworn translation agency, you're guaranteed to get your ticket to an international adventure without any worries. We make it quick and easy to get your driving licence translated.

Why translate your driving licence?

Are you planning to take to the road beyond our borders? Before embarking on an international adventure, make sure that your driving licence is accepted in your destination country. If this is not yet the case, you will need to have it translated by a sworn translator using a professional such as Un Traducteur.

The need for translation to drive international business

Exploring new horizons is the dream of many motorists in search of a change of scenery and a new experience on the road. When planning a road trip abroad, the first thing to do is find out about the regulations in force in the country where you will be driving.

If you're driving in a European country such as Belgium or Luxembourg, your French driving licence will do just fine. In some countries that do not recognise the French driving licence, it must be translated by a professional registered with a Court of Appeal to be valid. This is known as a sworn translation.

A sworn translation of your driving licence is compulsory in certain countries that have signed bilateral agreements with France. As well as helping you to travel freely abroad, it makes it easier to take out car insurance. It also enables you to assert your rights in the event of a road accident.

The following infographic summarises the main countries that require a driving licence to be translated.

Advantages of a sworn translation of your licence

Sworn translation of a driving licence involves transposing the contents of the document into a foreign language, in accordance with the original. It is only carried out by an approved translator who has taken an oath before a court of law, in order to preserve the official value of the document.

A driving licence translated and sworn may be useful, or even essential, depending on the country you are visiting. This document proves your identity, nationality and ability to drive a vehicle. You also need it to carry out various activities, as a sworn translation makes it easier to :

  • opening a bank account abroad ;
  • car hire ;
  • communication in the event of a roadside check, dispute or accident.
