Driving Licence Translation FAQ

Driving licence translation is the process of translating the information on a driving licence from one language to another. This service is essential for individuals who are planning to drive in a country where the language of their original driving licence is not widely understood. This is often required by car rental companies, insurance agencies, and traffic authorities to verify your driving credentials and identity.

While you may be able to translate the text yourself, official translations typically require certification by a professional translator or translation company. Self-translated driving licences may not be accepted by authorities or organisations due to the lack of certification.

Our driver's licence translations are widely accepted by insurance companies, consulates and embassies, the DVLA, and foreign governments. When we send the translated documents, we will provide a Certificate of Translation Accuracy, which will:
• state that it's a 'true and accurate translation of the original document'
• state the full name and contact details of a representative of the translation company (not the translator)
• include the translation stamp and credentials of our translation company.
This fulfils the requirements of certified translations in the UK.

We charge on a per-page basis, and we typically complete the translations within 1-2 working days. We also offer an expedited service for urgent requests. To receive an accurate quote, please send a copy of your driving licence by email or by uploading it through our quote forms.

The certified translations of your driver's licence will be sent to you electronically as a PDF file via email. If a physical copy is required, you have the option of printing the PDF document and it will be considered as an original copy. However, please ensure that you print the translated documents in colour. This will help distinguish them from photocopies and avoid any potential confusion. If you have requested sworn, notarised or apostilled translations, they will be sent to you by post.

We kindly request that you avoid sending us the original driver's licence by post, and send us a scanned copy or a photo instead. Please make sure the scanned copy is clearly legible as we cannot translate anything that is blurred.

If you don’t have a scanner, you can take a high-quality picture of your document with your smartphone or camera and upload it to our website.

We offer driving licence translation services in over 120 languages, including French, Spanish, Italian, German, Polish, Turkish, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Russian, and Arabic. If you would like to know whether we support a particular language, please don't hesitate to contact us.

We take the privacy and security of our clients’ personal information very seriously. All documents submitted for translation are handled with strict confidentiality protocols. Our translators are bound by non-disclosure agreements, and we employ secure data storage and transfer methods to protect your sensitive information.

Before submitting an order, please ensure that the driving licence is free from errors or omissions, as we are required to translate the driving licence exactly as it is, even if it contains mistakes.
