I have one of the old pink paper UK licenses which does not expire for 7 years. Is it easy to exchange this for a Bulgarian license or is it wiser to carry on with this one and not rock the boat? Thanks folks for any suggestions.

The exchange is straightforward enough...pays to remember that they take your UK one which is then cancelled. Might make it a bit difficult if you decide to return to live in the UK.

Thanks for the advice. Absolutely no plans to live in the UK again!

Hi Justbazz

I wonder if this is one of those 'Area' things ?? have some UK residents in this neck of the woods - Dobrich- who are going through the process, medical done, residential check done etc, but they have been told to send in a photocopy of their UK licence? which they have done..

Will double check, as it sounds like another area that can cause confusion,

Is there a medical required for an exchange? Not a problem but seems a bit cheeky. Presumably this Yr 8 education documentation wouldn't apply - there is no way my school will still have records from 1966.

Medical mostly consists of an eyesight test, but may differ from place to place. The education aspect won't be required for a straight exchange. The Plovdiv KAT uses the photocopy of the UK licence to liase with UK authorities regarding demerit points and previous history and will take the original off you when handing over the BG photo licence.

Been there...done that.

Thanks for that. I tried to get my license on the DVLC website but can't enter a UK postcode since I haven't lived there since 1998. Will try to contact Swansea by phone or mail
