To exchange a European driving licence, you need to make an appointment, either in person at the local authority counter or online, depending on the procedures in force in the local authority concerned. The costs and time involved may vary from one local authority to another, but in general you should expect to pay between €30 and €40, and the process should take around 5 working days. As regards the withdrawal of the exchanged licence, it is possible to appoint someone other than the owner to collect it.
