Please note that exchange of foreign licences to an Irish licence will take longer to process as the licence entitlements have to be verified by the country that issued it. In exceptional circumstances, this can take up to 3 months.
NOTE: When you make an application for renewal or exchange you will be issued with a receipt which you should carry with you to confirm you are in the process of renewal or exchange. You will continue to be fully licensed to drive for the period of the application process for renewals and on exchange provided the original licence submitted for exchange is current and valid.
