Driving in North Cyprus

Driving in North Cyprus

As in the UK, North Cyprus drives on the left-hand side on the road.  Anyone with a driving licence can drive in the TRNC.  You can use your foreign driving licence to drive in the TRNC for up to three months.  Then you will have to get a TRNC driving licence.  If you do not obtain one and have an accident then the car insurance will no longer be valid, it will become null and void. Landmark Estates lists information below.

To obtain a TRNC licence you will need the following:

1.     Passport bearing a residence stamp, a photocopy of photo page and permit

2.     2 passport size photos

3.     Original and a photocopy of the national driving licence

4.     Application form

5.     Fee (depends on the validity of licence – 2, 3, or 5 years).  In 2016 a ten-year licence is available.

To calculate how much your next road fund licence will be, for cars under the age of 5 years multiply the number of kilo’s your vehicle weighs, times the amount per kilo.

 

Remember, as your car in the T R N C gets older, the amount of road fund due reduces. The amount due will probably be approximately the same you paid in the previous year, confusing isn’t it?

 

Number Plates

 

31st of January this year is the last day to have the Government approved number plates fixed to your vehicle without attracting a fine if stopped by the police.  The fine will be 235tl if you do not change after this date.
