If you are a non-EU citizen and you stay in Poland for at least 185 days, you must obtain a Polish driving license. The exchange procedure differs depending on the country of issue of the document.
Suppose the driving license was issued in a country that has ratified the Geneva or the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic, and your driving license meets the standards of these conventions. In that case, it is enough to submit an application for exchange and pay the fee.
Suppose your driving license was issued in a country that has not ratified the Geneva or the Vienna Convention, or your driving license does not meet these conventions’ standards. In that case, you must submit an application and additionally pass the theoretical part of the state driving exam.
To find out if an exam is necessary, go to one of the Resident Service Centers in Wrocław:
