Driving licenses are no longer issued by the police.

Driving licenses are no longer issued by the police.

Recent change to the conversion of foreign driving licenses for foreign residents who have tried to make an online appointment with the traffic police’s website with the intention of converting their foreign license into a Turkish license, may have noticed that the related link does not work.

The process has been transferred to the Public Registration Offices or Nüfus Müdürlüğü which exist in every district/ilçe. These offices were already in charge of delivering Turkish ID cards, but as of 2.4.2018 they have also started issuing passports and driving licenses.

Appointments for passport, ID card and driving license applications are all made online via one website www.randevu.nvi.gov.tr (only in Turkish) or through the Public Registration Directorate’s hotline 199 (providing service in Turkish, English and German).

In time, this will certainly become an improvement, as citizens’ information and fingerprints are collected at one single office. For the moment it is rather chaotic, as the Nüfus Müdürlüğü offices are completely overwhelmed by all the work, especially with address registrations due to elections coming up on June 24th.

For the moment it is impossible to make online appointments for foreigners, because the website does not yet accept Foreign ID numbers, but the 199 hotline works and I have been told that applicants may also just show up at any Nüfus Müdürlüğü to submit their conversion file.

The requirements haven’t changed - SEE ARTICLE - but please note that 2018 fees and taxes have:
Driving license card fee: 134,00 TL
Tax for B (car) category license: 495,70 TL
Tax for A, A1, A2 (motorbike): 164,40 TL
Donation to police foundation: 25,00 TL

But a foreign resident does not need a Turkish license...3.2 1..

Re: Driving licenses are no longer issued by the police.

He does 5 years after he's rematriculated his left hand drive dog which must have SGK if he's married to a Turk and he's been working outside of Turkey using a mobile phone registered in UK which cannot be used by paying guests in his house unless hes informed the Jandarma

Think that's covered most of them

Re: Driving licenses are no longer issued by the police.

A friend of mine who lives in Turkey did not realise that he had to renew his licence at 73. He has been trying to get a Turkish Licence but has a problem in that one of the criteria is that he needs school records as proof of his identity. He has no record of having been at school as he did no exams whilst there. The only educational records are on the City & Guilds audio visual engineering (a three part course) which he attained with distinction. Any thoughts as to what he can do?

I went to school and got a leaving certificate , but unfortunateley, it got lost/thrown away years ago
The unfortunate thing is the link to the gov website where they say you can get confirmation is as much use as a fart in a spacesuit .......It comes up with "sorry nothing found" every time, I tried it and even with a school which is still around today , it can't find any record of anything..............bloody useless

Yes TRNC is fine, regular flights from Antalya and other places. You may wish to stay over for a curry and do some shopping. A word of warning though they put all bags through the X ray to look for extra booze at the airport in Antalya. Avoid the weeked flights are more expensive due to the casino-crowd
