Italian Driver's Licence

patente italianaThe Consulate General can renew driver's licences only to residents of its jurisdiction who are enrolled with A.I.R.E. or to those who have been in Australia for at least six months (evidence will be provided by the most recent stamp on arrival in the country on the applicant’s passport).

The licence must have expired within the last three years or it must be close to its expiry date (within 4 months) and it must have been issued without any duration restrictions.

 

THIS CONSULATE GENERAL CANNOT:

  • Issue duplicates of driver licences

In case of theft or loss of a licence it is therefore advisable to contact the Motorizzazione Civile in Italy to ascertain what are the documents required to obtain a duplicate.
    • If in this context an authentication of a signature for a proxy or authentication of photos will be needed, you can visit the Consulate via appointment only for Consular Services.
  • Issue or renew an International driver permit
  • Issue certificates or declaration of any type
    • Only the offices of the Italian Motorizzazione Civile can issue certifications and/or declarations concerning driving records, what kind of motor vehicles one can drive with a “B” Class licence, the expiry or the renewal of a driver licence.

Cost of the renewal

The driving license will be renewed for the duration established by the Italian road traffic regulations, the category and the age of the driver.

Once back in Italy, the normal renewal procedure must be followed, as provided by ART. 126 PARAGRAPH 5 OF CODICE DELLA STRADA.

Therefore, those who also have an Australian driving license can consider renewing the Italian one directly in Italy, always within three years of its expiry.
