The most powerful driving licences in the world
Drivers in the United Kingdom and France have the most powerful driving licences in the world, allowing them to be behind the wheel within minutes of visiting another country.
An interactive map created by Compare the Market looked at which countries’ driving licences can be used most easily in other countries.
Some countries allow drivers to exchange their licences with no extra tests, but others require drivers to take another test to get their new licence.
Of the 22 nations included in the map, France and the UK were joint first, as their driving licences have the least restrictions when driving in other countries.
The USA’s driving licence came in seventh, while Russia had the least powerful licence, with restrictions in almost every country.
Only a Chinese driving licence is valid in China, but the Chinese licence is valid in all 21 nations.
Indian driving license should be banned in India, seeing our fellow drivers respect for traffic and all the RTO s who gave these should be made accountable
Our country men , when they come to the Gulf , are the most disciplined drivers…..
Sorry, I don’t think so. The last time I came to Dubai, an old Arab’s car broke down at a round about. My friend and I who were passing, stopped our car to help him push his car to the side of the road. Nobody joined us to help the old man, but we had people of all kinds including Indians honking non stop at us.
Indian driving licence is a licence to kill on the street. Ask salman, Parera and Jhanvi
Corrupt quit India
I have seen a handicapped person who cannot drive even bycycle has been given driving licence for light motor vehicle by RTO in Delhi by taking bribe of Rs. 2500/-
Corruption is main item in RTO… With money you can get anything … Incredible India …
It is still a nightmare to get a DL issued in India. To add to it, the driving licence officers make sure that they make your life miserable so that you approach an agent to get the work done.
Forget about respect for traffic and fellow drivers. Salman Khan’s hit and run case in 2002 and his acquittal after more than 13 years in Courts is a shame. I think India does not have to have driving licences. Any one can drive and kill people. I think they don’t even need to have any Court Cases.
with so many driving schools paying hafta – how can you get real quality . No banning friend -simple and very severe punishment .
Indians should take licence from abroad?stupid thinking,all agree with you?
