Anyone driving a motor vehicle on the roads in Monaco must be 18 years or older and have a valid driving licence (permis de conduire) for a category of vehicle which corresponds to the vehicle they are driving.
Any person resident in Monaco and holding a valid foreign driving licence must exchange it for a Monegasque driving licence within a year of acquiring Monaco residency. The Service des Titres de Circulation issues licences.
If the licence does not qualify for exchange, the driver will need to take a full Monaco theory and practical driving exam in order to be issued with a Monaco licence.

On exchange, the Monaco licence will be valid for the same vehicle categories as the original licence.
Some countries request that a visitor carry an International Drivers Licence (IDL) also called an International Drivers Permit (IDP) (Permis international) along with their valid national licence. Holders of a Monaco driving licence can apply for an International Driving Licence at the Service des Titres de Circulation.
Note: An international licence does not replace a driver's licence - it accompanies it and acts as an official certificate of validity of the national licence. It is an internationally recognised document.
