Hi.

I'm moving to the UK in a couple of months to study. I have a Norwegian license and I've had it for about 1,5 years without any problems.

I think I can use my license for 1 year but I'll live in the UK for 2 more years. Do I have to take a new test? Any links or information will be helpful.
Thank you

I'm confused - I have heard about the 1 year limit too, but the link says EU licenses until you turn 70 or until it's valid. :confused:

Norway is not in the EU, but is part of the EEA (European Economic Area).

As such, a full Norwegian driving licence is valid for driving in the UK for as long as your licence is valid.

The 1 year limit applies to people arriving from outside the EEA and from a "non-designated" country.
