Converting U.S. Driver’s Licenses
The U.S. Consulates General from time to time receive requests from U.S. Citizens to certify that their driver’s licenses, issued by a state in the United States, are genuine. Such requests are generally made in order to fulfill a requirement made by the South African Department of Motor Vehicles.
Please be advised that U.S. consular officers are not authorized to confirm the authenticity of a driver’s license issued in the United States. We recommend that U.S. Citizens contact the DMV in the state that issued their driver’s license for such requests. A helpful website is www.dmv.org. Please note that this website is not endorsed in any way by the Department of State.
Renewing Driver’s Licenses:
Please contact the DMV in the State that issued your driver’s license. The U.S. Consulate cannot assist with renewing driver’s licenses issued in the United States.
