The minimum age to drive a car in Hungary is 17 years and drivers must have a valid driving licence and third party car insurance before driving in HungaryHungary operates a penalty point system for traffic offences (e.g., not wearing a seat belt, overspeeding). When a driver accumulates 18 penalty points, they lose their license and can only re-apply after a six-month ban, and when they have completed a course.

A Hungarian driver’s license can be issued to foreign citizens in Hungary who have stayed six months in Hungary before the issuance of the driver’s license. If you already have a driver’s license, you can drive a vehicle for a period of one year from the start date of your continuous residence in case your license was issued in a country which joined the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic in 1968. In 2018, Nigeria became the 78th country to sign the convention. It is now possibe to exchange your valid Nigerian drivers license at the Central Office for Administrative and Electronic Public Services.
