Changing Your License in Israel Will Be A Little Easier

Lipman is advocating for an automatic transfer from a driver’s license abroad to an Israeli license.

Changing your driver’s license in Israel may get a little easier, thanks to efforts by U.S.-born Yesh Atid MK Dov Lipman.

The immigrant lawmaker has been pushing to do away with the red tape that typically snarls efforts by new immigrants to acquire an Israeli driver’s license after years of driving in their countries of origin.

Lipman is advocating for an automatic transfer from a driver’s license abroad to an Israeli license. But failing that, he was willing to praise a first move by the Committee for Absorption and Immigration, chaired by fellow Yesh Atid MK Yoel Razbozov.

The committee approved a decision not to require new immigrants to take a theory test in Hebrew if they fail the practical driving exam twice when fulfilling the requirement for transferring their driver’s license.

In addition, immigrants who serve in the IDF will have additional time to transfer their license – time served in the military will not be counted against the three-year mandatory limit (from time of immigration to Israel) for transferring one’s driver’s license from abroad.
