Visitors in Cyprus can drive using a valid International Driving Licence, or their National Driving Licence, provided it is valid for the class of vehicle they wish to drive.
The cost of a Cyprus Driving Licence is €40,00 for people aged up to 65, and free over the age of 65.
European driving licences are recognized officially by legislation (Law 94 (1)/2001).
Driving licences issued by the following countries must be replaced after a period of six (6) months:
– United States of America

Non-European citizens and citizens who come from any country other than the above mentioned countries are allowed to drive holding their particular nation’s Driving License for a period of around 30 days (this period is not strictly restricted). If they are holders of an International Driving License, they are allowed to drive, provided their license is valid.
Please note: A valid Driving Licence is a licence that has not been expired or cancelled, or repealed by the court or by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles.
