All you need to know about the countries where you can drive with an Indian license.

10 Countries Where You Can Drive with an Indian License

How blissful it would be to feel the wind in your hair driving on the road of scenic foreign locations. Being an Indian definitely helps acquiring this fantasy.

Check out the countries where you can drive with an Indian license:

1. Norway

Even with modernism, large patches of the country still remain practically unsullied-offering sights for the sore eyes that look from behind a car window. However, with your Indian driving license you can drive in the country for just 3 months.

2. UK

One of the highly industrialized countries of the world, UK has infrastructure fitting for long drives and countrysides that are pleasing to the eye.

3. USA

The infrastructure is decisively built for the long-route commuter and the good news is that the infrastructure is pretty darn good. Indeed, it would be a shame if you couldn’t take a drive when you are there. Another good news is you can drive through the country using your Indian driving license for a whole year.

4. Switzerland

If you do happen to go there, you can savour the beauty of the Alpine valleys and the mesmerizing rivers from behind your wheels. You can continue the adventure for one whole year with your Indian driving license.

5. Australia

One great way to explore the country is on wheels, which you can do if you have an Indian driving license. The catch is, this is allowed only for the duration of three months, so you better get all the sight-seeing done in that period!

6. New Zealand

The country is famous for its enchanting mountains, so you are bound to experience some spectacular views on the road!

7. South Africa


A country which has a sort of spiritual link with India owing to Gandhiji, South Africa allows the Indian to drive through the nation with his/her national driving license for a whole year.

8. France


Having a French translation of your driving license would be advised. As for the places in France where you can have a good time taking the car out for a spin, there’s Paris the obvious and also Corsica-the many winding roads of which would require some driving skill though.

9. Finland

It is a country that has some outstanding nature. The validity that the country ascribes for your Indian driving license will vary from six months to one year depending on your insurance.

10. Germany

German engineering is a big thing when it comes to automobiles. So, it’s only fitting that you pay homage to the fact by driving through the German landscape.
