Therefore, drivers certainly have a number of questions: "What do you need to replace the driver's license?". We tried to put all the questions on the shelves, so that after reading the article, replacing the rights did not seem such a catastrophe.

A few words about the validity period of the driver's license

As noted above, the validity of the certificatethe driver is ten years old, after which it becomes invalid and must be replaced. However, there are exceptions to this rule. So, persons who stay on the territory of our country only temporarily and do not have a national driving license of their state, receive Russian rights on general grounds, but for the time that registration documents for the right to temporarily reside in our country operate. That is, in some cases, driving licenses for vehicles are issued for a period of less than ten years.

Replacement of the driver's license in connection with the expiration of the validity period: where does the procedure take place?

The simplest way is when yougo to the department of the traffic police, which is assigned to the place where you are registered (in the village, village, city). The address of the office (and just in case his phone) you can easily find out either on the Internet or in the Yellow Pages directory. Replacement of the driver's license in connection with the expiration of the validity period can be carried out in any department of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate, which is located in the territory of your federal subject (for example, on the territory of Moscow or on the territory of the Leningrad Region). The latter concerns both those who are officially registered, and people who do not have registration at the place of residence, but who live in a particular city / region in fact and permanently.

Documents required to replace a driver's license

The following list will help you gather your thoughts and correctly prepare a package of all those documents that are needed to replace the invalid rights with new ones:

  4. A document that confirms that you have a registration.
  5. Driver's license expired.
  6. Your photo size is 3 by 4 centimeters with a "corner" (except in cases when the traffic police provides for automated production of certificates).
  7. A receipt that is an indication that you paid for the issuance of a new certificate.
