District Police Departments
Duplicate of driving licence
The police will grant a duplicate of a driving licence if the licence has been lost, damaged, destroyed or stolen, or if it is no longer easy to identify the holder by the photo. If the driving licence is later found, it must be surrendered to the police. If the licence holder's name or personal identity number has changed, the application must be submitted within three months of the change.

A duplicate will not be issued if the holder of the right to drive has a permanent residence in another EU or EEA country. In that case the duplicate is issued by the country of residence.
It is possible to make an appointment for police licence services by using the time reservation system.

While waiting to get the duplicate licence, the applicant may be issued with an interim driving licence (for an additional fee), valid for up to three months.
