Vietnamese Driving License


Recommended Posts

Since I have been relocated in Vietnam for my job, arrived here beginning of October, i already got my work permit, trc.

 

Now, I would like to get a local driving license.

I have read that it is quite easy. You need your passport, visa valid for at least 3 months, and your original country driving license.

 

I came with a 3 months business visa, got a 2 years work permit and 2 years trc.

 

One my friend told me he used an agent. He paid 2 millions VND. Gave his passport and original country driving license. He went to the driving license office only 1 time and after a week got his Vietnamese driving license.

 

 Is it the best procedure to do?

I am based in HCMC

No the right,  I think you would have to have a death wish to drive in that country.

Well, not worse than Thailand or Myanmar where I have been driving long time. I am driving here already using my Thai driving license but as I am going to stay here for a while, i will get a local license

Maybe you can ask your employer, since they're the ones who supposedly relocated you there? 🤔

Actually I did and the friend I mentioned is the CEO of the company. I am just checking out if someone has more experience on that.

I posted on this forum in Vietnam section as I believe this is the purpose of this section.

Misplaced these by any chance?

Don't think so. I am user of Thaivisa. Live in Thailand for 20+ years.

Relocate at the moment in Vietnam for work so I believe this section has a purpose.

I was relocated in Myanmar before for work also and was using the Myanmar section of Thaivisa and it was useful

Yes I do. 

That's good. So why not get your license how they suggest. Sounds like a good idea not to run around too much. Good luck.

That's nice for you, but you obviously misunderstood my post.

 

I was actually backing you up (pretty obvious I thought from the post I made directly prior to the one you quoted) and extracting the urine from the person I quoted (a common trait between Aussies) - the glasses, as perhaps he needs them to see this is in the Vietnam section, the style of glasses (Dame Edna glasses) for calling you possum (as Dame Edna likes to address people).

Good advice. Thanks.

Yes sure, that's probably what i will do but forums on the net are also a good sources to get opinions and advises. I actually got better advises on other forum.

Thanks for your participation anyway.
