    Can you apply for a UK driving licence?

    You may have an issue of some places not recognising your driving licence.

    If it has your date of birth and a photo you might be ok in some places, particularly if it's in English and obvious what it is.

    However, they can be very strict - I often get refused with Naval Reserve ID, because it's not on an approved list, even though it has my date of birth and a photo and is obviously official.

    How long are you here for? If it's short term I would just try your driving licence, but if it's long term it might be worth getting something official, like a PASS card;

    Some places will only accept a UK driving licence or passport.

    If they won't recognize a foreign drivers license then they probably won't recognize a PASS card either.

    All right, thank you. I suppose I ought to invest in a PASS card just in case then.
