You´ll probably need international driving licence. I use it in the US, because my original driving licence from Slovakia is only valid with international driving licence in some countries. Maybe it´s the same for US citizens.

I'm not expecting anyone here to know whether Europcar would be satisfied by my producing the old and new together, but is there no such thing as a respectable 49-year-old Dutchman with a clean, 30-year driving record but a license issued three months ago? Surely they wouldn't want to be turning such people away....
In Italy you must renew your license every 10 years, but the license still bears the issue year. My license states: issued in 1997, renewed in 2007, valid until 2017.

In Hungary, driver license must be renewd in every ten years when you are young, and the older you are the shorter the validity is. Renewal is primarily a medical process, after that you get a new license.
The new license has its own issue date, but the original date when your very first driver license was issued, is written on the license as well.

I recieved my firswt driver license in 1995, renewd it in 2005. Additionally, I've lost all my documents in 2006, so I received a new driver license then. So my license has two issue dates: 1995 (original issue) and 2006 (current document's issue) and it's valid until 2015.
However, I think I'll replace it to a German one. German driver licences don't expire :-)

If I'm not mistaken, this changed recently. A friend of mine, Italian resident in Germany changed his Italian license to a German one few months ago because German licenses were still unlimited in temporal validity.

Yes, even the unlimited ones will all expire in 2033.
The ones issued after the law changed are valid up to 15 years, after which it will have to be changed, but with no exams.

With not any examination at all (I mean, no medical examinations)?

Dunno about that, I only quick searched on Wiki

Quote:
Seit dem 19. Januar 2013 werden Führerscheine in Deutschland nur noch zeitlich begrenzt ausgegeben und müssen nach spätestens 15 Jahren verlängert werden. Dabei läuft allerdings lediglich der Führerschein als amtliches Dokument ab, nicht aber die eigentliche Fahrerlaubnis (befristete Lkw- und Bus-Fahrerlaubnisklassen ausgenommen); damit wird eine Wiederholung der theoretischen und/oder praktischen Prüfung nicht nötig.
Führerscheine, die vor dem 19. Januar 2013 ausgegeben wurden, müssen bis spätestens 18. Januar 2033 erneuert werden.[1] Somit sind auch die alten Führerscheine nur bis zum 18. Januar 2033 gültig, obwohl diese Dokumente offiziell kein Ablaufdatum besitzen.
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%BC...heine_bis_2033

AFAIK, the Romanian drivers license is valid for 10 years, after which you have to get a new one with new picture. Don't know anything about retaking medical exams. Mine is still valid until 2018.

So, did you receive a brand new card? Many people in 2010-12 were still talking about the renewal sticker...

I've updated my photocard driving licence in 2006 when I moved home. The only dates on it are my dob and the valid from/to dates (ie when I changed address). We have to replace this every 10 years.

We also have a green paper driving licence (Couterpart Driving Licence - Form D740) over here on which has the date you passed your test and the expiry date of your licence printed on it. The latter is normally around your 70th birthday at which point you must renew your licence and take a further driving test. This part of your licence only needs replacing if you move home or change your name.

PS. If you get a 'producer'* from the police you must present both parts of your licence.

* Form HORT1 - a producer is issued if you don't have a licence on you when stopped by the police. You are given 4 days in which to produce your documents at your nearest police station with the 'producer' given to you by the police.

Every time I go there I spend time visiting wineries, so if you like any more Moldovan (or Romanian) wines, tell me and you can have it (or just some info) soon.
Sounds interesting, very interesting. I will send you PM soon

World's scariest bus trip (highway 87, South Dakota, USA)
