A sworn translation of your driver's licence may be needed for several reasons. It may be requested by a foreign authority or you may want to be well prepared for a trip you are about to take abroad. In all cases, you want to be sure that your driver's licence is translated perfectly.
Sworn translation driving licence
You will need to hire a sworn translator if you want a translation of your driver's licence to be recognised abroad. A sworn translator puts his or her stamp and signature on a translation performed by him or her, proving that your driving licence has been translated truthfully. This proves that your driver's licence has been translated truthfully. Beëdigd Vertaalbureau can help you when you want to have your driver's licence officially translated. We have sworn translators at our disposal who can quickly arrange this for you.
What is a driver's licence?
A driver's licence is a document that serves as proof that you are authorised to drive a particular vehicle. You receive a pink pass after obtaining your driver's licence. This pass also indicates which vehicles you are officially allowed to drive. If there are several, you only need one pass but all vehicles will appear on this pass. A European driving licence also serves as an identity document. For the time being, your driving licence may not always be used as an identification document. This is because it does not contain information about your residence status and nationality.
A driver's licence includes the following information:
- Your full name
- Your date of birth and the place where you were born
- The date of application
- The date the document expires
- The municipality where you requested the document
- What vehicles you can drive
- A passport photo
Why a sworn translation of your driver's licence?
If you want to participate in traffic abroad, you will have to be able to prove that you are in possession of a valid driving licence. A Dutch certificate of your driving ability is valid throughout Europe, but outside these borders it is not. A sworn translation of your driver's licence can serve as a valid statement that you can use outside of Europe. If you are going to work or study abroad, foreign authorities may also ask for a sworn translation of your driving licence. Therefore, always check with the relevant (government) agency whether a translation of your driver's licence is required.
