Similarly, Vietnamese driver license can be used elsewhere in ASEAN states without the need for conversion

Malaysian driver license should be the same. You should consult with your Malaysian authority why your Malaysian driver is not accepted here.

As mentioned earlier, the format needs to be in a format recognized by the Vietnamese authority, so if you have an older driver license thus in an format not recognized by Vietnam, it may not accept it.



International driver license is not accepted in Vietnam, but the country is in initial discussion/negotiation so it may take a couple of years before it is accepted.

In theory you may be right but it takes on average 2-3 years for the Vietnamese civil service to catch up with their own policy. My Malaysian license is up to date and there's only one format used for it.

Anyway i feel more comfortable getting my license converted as i own a car and dont want to screw up the insurance policy should i get into an accident. Best bet if you intend to drive in Vietnam is to play it safe regarding the paperwork because foreigners are always in the wrong should something go wrong in the eyes of the police.

For forigner to drive a car or truck in Vietnam, you must be fluent in speaking Vietnamese and be holding a perm resident visa . You must also pass the driving exams. Getting a truck license is a longer process. Hiring a car is cheaper and safer in the long run if just visiting. I drive a motorcycle when visit Vietnam.local police dont bother me. In HCMC it could cost you 200k if you get stopped by a police officer who will expect you to pay him off to walk away. You need to really need to know how to drive well when driving a moto in Vietnam no one follows any real rules of the road. It can be dangerous for you

Reading off my VN DL, the DL is Class A1, B1 or Motorcycle up to 175cc, Car up to 9 passenger and truck up to 3,500 kg. It took an hour or so, not much money and a valid US State DL. Note, this DL is not valid for commercial driving. It is also valid ASEAN wide. Also Note, All of these vehicles were listed on my US DL. If truck is not listed on your foreign DL, truck will not be on your VN DL

If you are in an accident involving a fatality with no DL, it is legally your fault and you can spend up to 20 years in a VN prison.

I have read via " Lonely Planet "that the International Drivng Permit is acceptable here now but you must have local insurance for it to be valid.
Otherwise I agree with Ciambella to be legal a foreigner needs to transfer their licence (bike or car)to a Vietnamese licence to stay within the law.To do this is easy and did so myself 9 months ago.The address of the office to arrange the transfer is
252 Ly Ching Thanh
District 3
.Hcmc
+84 8384 39775
It's quite difficult to find so if you are to go there PM me for directions if you wish.
You don,t need to speak Vietnamese( as stated on a previous 2013 post) to obtain a licence or drive legally.The staff at the office speak only Vietnamese and were aware that I did not speak Vietnamese,the translation being spoken by my wife.They will take your photograph for the new licence,the cost is minimal( I cannot remember the exact amount) and I picked up the Vietnamese licence about a week after the initial visit.There is no need to use an agent if you speak Vietnamese.You will need to take your passport and existing driving documents
If you have a driving licence then any insurance you have is valid...no driving licence...your insurance is void

Things must have changed for the better if you can do it all at the licensing centre. Before you had to get your license translated and have your documents stamped.
