So what kinds of licenses are needed to drive in Laos ? These are the four possibilities to legally drive a vehicle in Laos: 1) Lao driving license
Laos allows foreigners living & working in Laos to take a driving test within the country to obtain a domestic license. The Lao driving license is valid for a period of 5 years.
2) Temporary Lao Driving License
This driving license is basically a transcript of the Expat’s national driving license (the driving license issued by the Expat’s home country) and is valid up to one year. The temporary license is only given to Expats living and working in Laos, possessing the necessary paper work (including work permit etc). This license is only valid inside Laos.
