How to use My Chinese Driving licence in Mauritius?
Hello,I came from China and work in Mauritius. I already have a Chinese Driving licence and driving about 4 years. Can you tell me How to use My Chinese Driving licence in Mauritius & the procedures about how to apply for in Police Force?
Last year when I visited Mauritius, I was told by the police officers that I could drive on my UK driving licence for upto a month. This applies to other driving licences issued by a competent authority in the respective country. If you wanted to drive for a longer period, then you would need to get a permit from the traffic branch at Les Casernes in Port-Louis.
You can also exchange your Chinese driving licence for a Mauritian one if you wanted to. Many people do that when they take up permanent residence in Mauritius. This is done at Les Casernes and there's a fee to be paid for that though (could be around Rs500 or less).
BTW,I want know what's procedures to apply for this permit OR Mauritian driving licence?
Just take your chinese driving licence to Casernes along with your work permit and proof of address like a utility bill or something and tell them you want to get a mauritian driving permit and they'll sort you out.
Hello Jimmytan, you might want to check out the traffic branch of the Mauritius Police Force for more info:
but like mentioned above, you can drive for a month with your Chinese license, then it's better to get a Mauritian one if you plan on staying in Mauritius for a long time, or get an international one.
It's always a good idea to bring a copy of your passport for legal matters, 2 passport size photographs, your occupation permit or contact the police headquarters in Port Louis for more information.
