Carolina, on that page:"Exchanging your licence
If you change your residence to another EU country, you don't usually have to change your driving licence. You can use your
current licence as long as it remains valid."
1. The British Consul and her greek (expert) colleague stated that a foreign licence was valid for up to one year only and I should have exchanged mine nine years ago!
2. Failure to apply before Brexit will require a driving exam."All applicants are required to produce a Registration Certificate or Permanent Residence Certificate which must
have been issued at least 185 days beforehand."
Mine was re-issued last week with last week's date, although I've had one for ten years. Hmm.
I'll report back.
8.2.19 Keeping my notes in one post to (hopefully) avoid confusion.
3. The Residency Permit must be at least 185 days old. Luckily, I'd already had a laminated card copy made of the OLD permit and I had it with me.
4. The KEP office (at least the one I used) will do everything except the medicals. They will send the documentation to Athens for processing. There is ONE man there who deals with it. He has a "slight" backlog. Expect it to increase as 10,000 panicking expats apply. If your KEP won't do it, you WILL have to take the documents to your local licensing office.
5. My KEP office provided a list of approved doctors and opthalmologists. My own opth. was on the list so I made an appointment to see her.
6. Also (in my case) three E-parávolo forms: one of each for €50, €30 and €10 to be paid at a bank.
7. When KEP receive everything back they will phone you and you then take your UK pink licence card to exchange.
8. I'm not familiar with doctors, here, but I'm getting the impression that there's no appointment system. You turn up at 9am and wait.
9. You need photos that expose your ears and forehead and no spectacles. Standard passport photo won't do.
10. Confirmed: NO translation of licence required.
