Any resident foreigners out there who have completed a local driver's course and test to get a Turkish driver's license? My friend has been driving for years on a U.S. license and wants to get legal. Looking for comments / information.
If you have been a legal residence of Turkey for six months, you can no longer drive legally on your home country's driving license. You must get a Turkish driving license. Although this may not always be enforced, if you are involved in an accident, the police are likely to charge you with driving illegally. Your car insurance company may also refuse to pay on claims, citing the fact that you are not properly licensed. Also, car rental companies may refuse to rent a car to you if you are not licensed in Turkey. Here's an article on how to get a Turkish driving license.
