Anyone driving any type of motor vehicle on the roads in Belgium must have a valid driving licence (permis de conduire/rijbewijs). This licence must be carried on all journeys, and must be presented to an official on demand.
Belgian law allows the following types of licence:
Licence holders may only drive the category of vehicle for which their licence is valid. Some foreigners in Belgium must exchange their licence for a Belgian one, some may make the exchange if they wish, while yet others may not exchange their licence and will need to take a full driving test (theory and practical) in order to get a Belgian driving licence.
On May 1 2013, Belgium will update its rules on driving licences, international licence validity, licence renewal periods and licence renewal medical checks in line with EU directive 2006/126/EC.
