Citizens of Ukraine will be able to freely drive in Italy on the Ukrainian identity of the driver.
The corresponding agreement on mutual recognition and exchange of driver’s licenses was signed by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the government of the Italian Republic in the framework of the official visit to Italy of the President of Ukraine.
“The signing of this agreement the Ukrainian government has deprived drivers need to pass exams and spending money in Italy. Now they can travel freely by car through the Italian territory on the Ukrainian identity of the driver. The Italian system recognizes him along with a document issued in the country”, — commented on the signing of the agreement Deputy Prime Minister Gennady Zubko.
This agreement must ensure the rights of Ukrainians, who permanently or temporarily reside on the territory of Italy. The document envisages that an owner of a Ukrainian driver’s license may exchange it in Italian, without passing theoretical and practical exams and making appropriate payment.

Then they must obtain an Italian driver’s license. For this it is necessary to pass theoretical and practical tests and pay 600-1000 euros.
The agreement is concluded for a period of 5 years and shall enter into force 60 days from the date of receipt by the parties of the last written notification about the fulfilment of all necessary procedures. Further, the Ukraine and Italy will be consulted about the renewal of the document.
