Driving in Singapore: How to convert a foreign driving licence 

If you hold a driving licence that was issued outside of Singapore, you should check whether you need to convert your foreign driving licence to a Singapore driving licence before you begin driving in Singapore.

If you are a Singapore citizen or PR

If you are a Singapore citizen or permanent resident (PR), you can drive in Singapore only after you obtain a Singapore driving licence. You must convert your foreign driving licence to Singapore driving licence as soon as possible if you want to drive in Singapore.

New Singapore citizens and PRs must convert their foreign driving licences within 3 months of obtaining citizenship or PR status.

If you are a foreigner

If you are staying in Singapore for a short period, i.e. you hold a short-term social visit pass, you do not need to convert to a Singapore licence to drive in Singapore.

You must possess a valid foreign licence and an International Driving Permit (IDP) issued by an authorised body in your own country, example the Automobile Association (AA). If an IDP is not available, an official translation of your foreign licence in English is required.

Drivers from ASEAN member countries only need to possess a valid driving licence issued by their licensing authority in order to drive in Singapore without an IDP.

To continue driving in Singapore after 12 months of staying here (from the date of your last entry into Singapore), you must obtain a valid Singapore driving licence.

Prerequisites for converting your non-Singapore licence

If you are holding a motorcycle licence

You can convert a non-Singapore motorcycle licence into a Class 2B licence (for motorcycles that are 200 cc or less) once you pass the Traffic Police’s Basic Theory Test (BTT).

If you wish to ride a larger motorcycle of Class 2A (engine capacity of 201 cc to 400 cc) and Class 2 (engine capacity of 401 cc and above), you need the following:

Documentary proof of training and testing with a larger motorcycle;
Documentary proof of ownership of a larger motorcycle; and
At least 1 year’s of overseas riding experience on the road.
If you are holding a motorcar licence

You can convert your non-Singapore motorcar licence once you pass the BTT test. Both manual transmission and automatic transmission-type motorcar licences can be converted.

If you are holding a licence for heavy vehicles

Licences for heavy vehicles cannot be converted. You must enrol in a driving school and pass driving tests before you can operate heavy vehicles in Singapore.

Note
Some countries grant complementary licences, e.g. a motorcycle licence that is complementarily issued with a new motorcar licence. Such licences cannot be converted into Singapore licences. You must take riding lessons in Singapore and pass the relevant theory and practical riding test before you can ride or drive.

How to apply for conversion

Additional requirements if you are a Singapore citizen or PR

You must show documentary that you have studied or worked in a foreign country for 1 year or more, e.g. education transcripts or tax returns documents. You must also have stayed in that foreign country for a total period of at least 6 months within a period of 12 months .

If you hold a foreign driving licence that expired with your foreign visa, you must obtain a written extract from the foreign licence-issuing authority. The extract should show the following:

Your driving test passing date;
