Re: UK-Turkish license

I am not hanging on to mine on any principle idea or anything like that, I just literally never got round to changing it , but with the advent of us moving to Turkey (if we can ever sell our house here) and the possibility of them throwing a wobbler if I don't have the right licence , for £20, I'll change it

Re: UK-Turkish license

a lot of people might get stuck then unable to change their old uk license as they are resident in turkey and unable to get a tr license as they are unable to produce new uk one...catch 22.!

Re: UK-Turkish license

İ am now fully legal with my photo UK licence and my photo Turkish licence. The first allowes me to drive in the UK without restrictions the second allows me to drive like an idiot in Turkey without restrictions. What joy red lights are discretionary, indicators do not necessarily indicate my intentions and İ get to beep my horn non stop.

I thought driving licences were discretionary in Turkey!

The Turkish licence allows you some leeway in UK too: they can“t put points onto a Turkish licence.
