Transport

What you need

Bringing your car to Denmark is no problem at all, as long as it is properly registered in your home country and has a national licence plate. You must have a valid national driving licence (in roman type) or an international driving licence with you at all times when you drive.

Car safety equipment

Seatbelts must be worn by all passengers. Children up to 7 years old must be secured in a child car seat appropriate to their height and weight.

You must have your lights switched on at all times when driving and you need to have an emergency triangle in the car. Use of mobile phones while driving is prohibited.

If you are riding a scooter or motorbike, you must wear a helmet.

Insurance in Denmark

Foreign vehicles must have valid insurance. The Danish Association of International Motor Vehicle Insurance gives guidance on insurance requirements for cars registered in different parts on the world.
