Car driving licenses - UK driving license

Post by almostthere » Thu, 28 Dec 2006 4:58 pm

Hi
I have a UK driving license and want to know if it is valid here as an international driving license or do I need to get it changed? IF so does anyone know the procedure? Can I drive on it for say 6 months first?

Thanks

You are officially supposed to bring your normal driving licence along with an international licence, which you can get from the AA in UK, You can drive for 1 year in total, then you must convert, by doing the theory test here in Singapore.

They do not give you all groups, that are listed on the UK licence.
