An expat in Azerbaijan can drive on their driving license for a period of one year, however that driving license must be translated into Azeri and notarized. Always keep both documents with you when driving. After one year if the expatriate plans on staying in Azerbaijan he/she must apply for a new driving license in Azerbaijan.
The application must be made at the State Traffic Department with the following documents:
- Original driving license
- Passport – translated and the translation notarized
- Medical Certificate
Expats have to undergo a medical examination before taking the theory and practical driving tests. The tests are taken at the State Traffic Department.
